Young Bobby was involved in an accident which landed him in the hospital on life support. After many months of being supported by the life support system, the doctors finally advised his parents that it was actually useless to continue with the treatment. Bobby’s Mother told the hospital staff that as long as her son was supported by the life support system, she was not going to give up on him and to keep him connected. Little did the doctors know that the leap of faith little Bobby’s Mother had to keep him connected, would eventually pay off as little Bobby awakened out of his coma weeks later
Stories like this is the same as it is for believers today to stay connected to Jesus through His BLOOD!
Jesus said that He is the VINE which is our life support system. Without us being connected and covered through the BLOOD of Jesus, we are dead! Dead spiritually!!! Believers are connected like branches on a tree to Jesus. Once we stop believing and obeying the Word of God, we fall away and like a branch, fall to the ground and die and become good for nothing but to place in fire
We know when we are falling away. It is no mystery. We don’t wake up in the morning and say ‘OMG, I am no longer connected to Jesus!’ Falling away occurs gradually when we allow sin to creep back into our life. And, as sin creeps in, our blood supply from Jesus decreases and soon we die and are completely fallen away
To ensure that you stay connected to Jesus, you must and I can’t say this with enough emphasis, you must stay in His Word, on your knees in prayer and crucify the carnal man through fasting. Talk and walk with Jesus daily….He enjoys this
My fellow brother and sisters, stay connected!
God Bless You!
