The source of Life
If a man does not remain in Me, he is thrown out as a branch and withers. And they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.
- John 15:6
In Ohio, we have a lot of clay reserves. In some areas, the topsoil is very
thin, while underneath there is a hard layer of clay called a
"hardpan." We can have an all-out downpour, and within hours the
topsoil will be as dry as powder.
Some Christians shout victory on Sunday, but by Monday they have no joy, no
victory, and no peace. They are as hardhearted as our Ohio clay, and their
fruit withers on the vine. They are without patience, mercy, gentleness,
meekness, temperance, or compassion. They are just going through the motions.
Others wither as soon as the hot winds of temptation, trouble, and tribulation
blow their way.
Keep your faith fresh and alive by constantly tilling the soil of your heart.
Pray for the Holy Ghost to send the rain. Stay in union with the source of all
life, and your faith will blossom and bear fruit in season.
- John 15:1-8
- John 16:33
- 1 Corinthians 15:57
- Romans 8:14
