John 15:5 “I am the Vine, you are the branches. When you’re joined with me and I with you, the relation intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant. SEPARATED, you can’t produce a thing.” (MSG).
The Amplified Version says “I am the Vine, you are the branches. The one who remains in Me and I in him bears much fruit, for (otherwise) apart from Me (that is cut off from vital union with Me) you can do nothing.”
WE can do nothing without Him, this is what the Word of God says and Jesus Christ is the One speaking here. We need to know this, believe this and remember this scripture always, even if we cannot remember any other scripture. The Holy Spirit is our Helper; you cannot be a victorious man/woman, husband/wife, father/mother, son/daughter, brother/sister, entrepreneur, worker in His vineyard and friend without Him. We cannot make right decisions, do any good deed and fight earthly and spiritual battles victoriously, without Him. WE CANNOT LIVE A CHRISTIAN LIFE WITHOUT HIM PERIOD!!!.
What am I trying to say, is that all the promises of the Bible are ours as long as we take Christ with us wherever we go. you let Him be the driver and just follow His leading. One of His promises you should claim, is His promise of peace in every situation you find yourself. No matter the challenge you face, if you can feel His peace then it goes without saying that He is with me and you know what that means, you can rest while He fights the battle. In the Book of Isaiah, the writer said God will keep in perfect peace, those whose mind is stayed on Him, because he trusts Him. When you trust God the way you are meant to, then you will always have peace in whatever situation you find yourself. you will look at any situation, and see Jesus in the situation but without Christ, one will look at the situation and see the situation. Jesus Christ said Himself in the Book of John chapter 14 that He gives me a gift of peace of mind and heart, so I should never be troubled or afraid in any situation. He promised He will never leave or forsake you and He is with you always, so tell me why you should remove CHRIST out of my CHRISTIANITY.
Brethren, we need to do what He says we should do. We need to carry Jesus Christ with us all the time. Don’t leave Him in the house when you want to go out, or take Him out of the house but leave Him in the car when you get to where you are going or even leave Him out of your heart and mind and just carry Him superficially to please people. God sees and knows all things; He can read your mind and sees the motive behind every action. Remember He told us, He knows our thoughts before we even think them (that just blows my mind), why then would you allow the devil trick you into thinking you can outsmart Him. This is what God has called us to do and by the help of the Holy Spirit we can only get better at it.
