ABIDE IN ME
(Scripture Reflection John 15:5)


"Apart from me you can do nothing"

Abode means dewlling place and to abide in Jesus means to stay with Him because He already abides in us. God has placed us in Jesus at our Baptism. God's love and grace flows from Him to us only if we remain in Jesus.
We christians see ourselves as mere limbs of the Divine body of Christ, not independent and self-sufficent persons. The body of Christ is the church founded on the rock called Peter. we dont have to make efforts to go in: we are already there, already a part of the body and outside it we can do nothing. there is more if we stay as worthy members of the Body of Christ we can ask the Lord whatever we wish- an overarching promise that assures us a new life which glorifies God.
