Get Connected.


If you are one of those people who has it all together, this may not be for you. Feel free to stop reading. 

I’ll wait.

Still here? Maybe it’s because you’re not quite sure. I’m certain you’re wonderful, but perhaps you’re seeking something more. Something deeper. Something connecting you to something bigger than yourself.

M
You can’t make a call if your service is disconnected.
Your clothes will always be wrinkled if the
electric cord can’t reach the socket.
  Your iPod might be playing your favorite music,
but without headphones, you’ll never hear it.
You’ve got to get connected.
aybe you are already a believer, but lately, you’ve been feeling a little cold. Empty? Not quite there? I know something, and I’m happy to tell you.  I may know your problem. You may be disconnected from the Vine. You know, this one…

"I am the vine. You are the branches. Those who live in me while I live in them will produce a lot of fruit. But you can't produce anything without me.” John 15:5 (GW)


Apart from Him, in whose image we were created (Genesis 1:27), in whom we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28), we’re no good. You don’t have to take my word for it. How can fruit grow, ripen, and reproduce cut off from the vine?

You can’t make a call if your service is disconnected. Your clothes will always be wrinkled if the electric cord can’t reach the socket.  Your iPod might be playing your favorite music, but without headphones, you’ll never hear it. You’ve got to get connected.

Therefore the LORD waits to be gracious to you,
and therefore he exalts himself to show mercy to you...
He will surely be gracious to you at the sound of your cry. As soon as he hears it, he answers you. Isaiah 30:18-19 (ESV)

It takes very little to get connected. Just a plea; a cry for help. Try this…

Lord,
I can’t do it by myself. I need to be connected. I acknowledge that on my own I produce nothing, so I will try it Your Way. Lord, I need you; help me.
In Jesus name, let it be so.
Amen.

Today’s lesson-You can’t do it on your own, so stop trying.
