Jesus said in the Bible, “Apart from Me, you can do nothing”. Although a lot of us acknowledge this line to be true, we still have this tendency to downplay the huge role God plays for our plans to be successful. Our treatment of His church has been reduced to just a “weekly routine” that “we need to attend to” instead of it being our lifeline to God & a bridge of purpose for His will in our lives to come to pass.
Today, God wants to remind us how meaningless life can be apart from Him & His church. If we want to experience true living, real success & lasting satisfaction, we must recognize our need to be a part of what God is doing through His church. In that way, we will always be connected to Him & His overall purpose – not just for us, but for all the people around the world.
If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. – John 15:5
