"I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the wonderful future He has promised to those He called. I want you to realize what a rich and glorious inheritance He has given to His people." Saint Paul to the Ephesians 1:18

Glorious inheritance. Let me just savor that! In the following verse, Saint Paul says that we who believe have IN us an immeasurable, unlimited, surpassingly great power, the same resurrection power that raised Christ from the dead. When we read these words, do we scoff with incredulity and skepticism, or do we claim and confess it? I do both. First, I think, I don't see this power in my life! And then I squash that thought like an uninvited bug! You see, if we try to live according to how God wants us to live, sometimes we don't see the changes. We tend to focus on how we keep failing God, how much we sin, how we are not victorious over our weaknesses. But we can focus on what Saint Paul said in Philippians 1:6: " He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus."

Just as it was so important for Jesus to go to Samaria, to speak to the woman at the well in the 4th chapter of John, we can be sure that He will seek us out, no matter how big a sinner we are. He wants to give all of us a chance to never thirst, but to have a part of His glorious heritage in Him!

"Abide in Me and I in you." John 15:4

After Jesus washed the disciples' feet, even Judas', he went on to speak to them about Him being the true vine.  He said the Father was the gardener, the vine-dresser, who cuts off branches that do not bear fruit.  The disciples were the branches. The vine-dresser cut off one of the branches because "anyone who parts from me is thrown away like a useless branch and withers.  Such branches are gathered into a pile to be burned." (John 15:6)

I am sure we do not like to wither and burn like Judas!  The only way is to abide in Jesus, to stay joined to Him, to dwell with Him, to remain in Him, to walk with Him.  Daily.  If we examine ourselves, perhaps we will find what we are connected to.  Are we attached to our bank account? Our reputation? Our job? What vine are we joined to? Perhaps we are hanging on to Jesus by a fragile little tendril? Even if that is the case, we can always reconnect with the true vine. I was delighted to learn that almost all grape vines used for wine making is grafted!  And so even Judas who was cut off, could have begun anew if only he repented and asked Jesus to forgive him.

Thank you Lord for forgiving us 70 x 70 times, and even more! Help us to abide in You and You in us!

Introduction
Welcome to my blog HeARTworks! Greetings from the Philippines! My name is Patsy and I've been married for 19 years to a man with a good heart. We have one son who is as funny as his dad. I have been working in our family business, papemelroti, since I was 11. When I get home from work, I stay in my craft room and make collages, scrapbook layouts, ATCs, and think of ways to re-use things normal people would throw away. I would be happy for you to use anything on my blog, but please link to me and leave me a comment. I want to be passionate about God's passions so I also made a blog, Hebrews 13:3, about our service in the QC Jail.
