Abide - Meditation # 3 on John 15

I’m not too keen on the idea of someone searching my life, rifling through my actions, words, thoughts and intentions.  I’ll share what I want to share thank-you-very-much!  Funny how in a Facebook saturated culture, we’re all about sharing… but really,… we’re all about sharing what we want others to see or think of us. 

And that’s all.

Meditation #2 on John 15

... He is mysterious and big and wild and gentle and unpredictable and a bit revolutionary and there is so much that must have been confusing to the people who heard His voice.

Yet His purpose was to reveal. 

“I Am the true vine …”

This idea of the “true” vine has always felt like a little speed bump to me.  If Jesus is making a point to identify that He is the “true” vine, then there’s a reason for this distinction.

How to live "present".  It is to dwell.  to remain. to stay in a place or position or state.  It's about abiding.

But to abide must start with my thinking and beliefs.  

Join me in a series of meditations on John 15:1-16 where jesus gives you and I a beautiful picture which holds the key to this kind of life.
