Filled with Him

"I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing."
John 15:5

Too much taken up with our work, we may forget our Master; it is possible to have the hand full, and the heart empty. Taken up with our Master we cannot forget our work; if the heart is filled with His love, how can the hands not be active in His service?
-Adolphe Monod

Only one life, 'twill soon be past; only what's done for Christ will last.

Blessings in Christ!

No Way!!! we used the same verse! I swear I didn't even read yours first...:) I had to laugh when I read it though, it was quite a coincidence haha. Have a good day.

I've never heard of Adolphe Monod before - that's a great statement! One to read several times over, and it's so true. Loving is done "with actions and in truth".
