"Purifying Power of Abiding"
95% of married men feel a stronger connection with an object of their affection other than their spouse. They look at them, spend time with them, touch and hold them more than their wife. They dread not being with them or losing them, and they can’t imagine life without them. They sleep with them and wake up beside them. Men are having affairs with their cellphones.
If only we, as branches, would have the same attachment to Jesus, the vine. It is Him we should look to, know, touch, spend time with and fear losing. Because apart from Him, life has no meaning, no fulfillment. “We were joined to Him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit for God.” (Rom 7:4)
