Today’s Gospel: John 15:9-11 (The Vine and The Branches)
Jesus loves us like no one on this planet can ever love us. His love is beyond immeasurable. Not even death could stop His love for us; in-fact His death magnified His love for us. Jesus paid the greatest price to pardon all of us of all our sins; we owe Him not only our life, but our every waking and sleeping moment of our existence. Everything we have is because of Him.
Pondering these thoughts today: Most will bail and say forget this when I say these things; but seriously we must surrender our lives fully and follow Jesus. I know, what exactly does that mean? It can be interpreted a bunch of different ways. The easiest way to understand “surrender your life” is this: Always in all things put Jesus Christ FIRST in everything you do, every decision you make, every place you go, literally everything! He must be the reason you make the choices; your own selfish desires and reasons must not take priority or precedence in your life. You must take care of your family, be a Godly spouse, be a Godly parent, be a good worker, a good friend; but even in these things stay Christ centered. Pray about all this to help you better understand.
LOVE YOU GUYS !!!!
