Reflections Along the Jesus Way

October 29, 2023 – Quote for the Day:

“… salvation is not BY works, but FOR works.  God saves and rescues and re-births us, Christ in us, the hope of glory, works in our lives, producing in and through us the fruit of the Holy Spirit.  Only God can create a tree. And the only reason a tree brings forth fruit is that God created the tree and vibrant systems within the tree that enable fruit-bearing.  No stick of wood can plant itself in the ground, and by rigorous effort, expect fruit to be borne on its branches.  Jesus said, ‘I am the vine, you are the branches… without me, you can do nothing (John 15:5).”
