Every day, we need to go to our quiet place...

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

April 27, A.D. 2005

Acts 15:1-6
Psalm 122:1-5
John 15:1-8

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask for whatever you want and it will be done for you.

Today's Gospel is an extra special one and one that most of us will be quite familiar with. Jesus is the one true vine and we are the branches -- the branches that bear fruit He prunes so that we they can bear more fruit. Living in Christ we are called to bear fruit with our lives -- to rid ourselves of dead and self-defeating thoughts and actions. We are called to live in the Light, to live in Truth, honouring the presence of Christ within us. By living in Christ we can choose wisely -- not necessarily choosing the easy path but choosing the right path for us to grow and deepen -- the right path for us to bear much fruit.

Choosing to reside in Jesus, we choose Life -- gurgling, vibrant, immediate Life which courses through our mind, body and spirit. With Jesus all matter of things and healing are possible.
