Without Him, you can do nothing

RBZ Vineyard 10.4.09 - Fall Leaves & clusters

A branch that does not remain on the tree withers away. It withers because there is no more sap. Jesus is the vine. The sap is the Holy Spirit. When you understand that you are this branch that needs both the Tree and the Sap to live, you understand that without Him you can do nothing. When you understand your condition as a branch, as a servant, you start seeing things from a different perspective.

Without Him, you can’t do anything, you can’t solve anything, and you can’t endure anything. This is why the most important thing is to abide in Him, connected to the Trunk, receiving the Sap that gives life to produce fruit. A branch can’t survive alone, and it can’t bear fruit by itself. A branch is not independent from the tree. Only those who don’t insist on laying down their own roots and depending on their own strength can bear fruit. In order to be grafted into the Vine, you need to let go of your roots and rely on the Tree that gives you life.

When you depend entirely on the Tree, you bear fruit—fruit of good character that shows that you and the Tree are one. Once a branch receives the Sap, it can bear fruit to feed many. The branches are strong because the Tree is strong. Their fruits are healthy because the Tree is healthy. Be conscious of this from now on. If you are a branch, you no longer depend on yourself; you depend on the Tree that sustains you. Instead of worrying about what you have to do, worry about remaining in Jesus, for without Him you can do nothing. It’s not because being independent is forbidden, but because it’s simply impossible.

“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5)

    It´s true we are nothing without the Holy Spirit, so there no way out at all. Definitely we can´t have life, we can´t do anything without Him.

    Thank you Mrs Sandra for this very important message. It’s so tur it is impossible to do anything without the help of the Vine ( Lord Jesus) and the Sap (Holy Spirit). Yes, I’ve tried and failed many times!

    Cuando queremos hacer las cosas por si solas y sin querer dependes del Señor Jesús podemos tener la Certeza que no seremos nada.
    mas cuando colocamos nuestro yo en ÉL y nos tornamos fieles dependientes de el Señor Jesús y de su Espíritu somos y seremos mas que vencedores.

    Verdade sem Deus não somos nada sem o Espírito Santo não podemos ser salvos
    pois temos nos entregar totalmente para Deus nós Conectar mais nas coisas de Deus. E ter bons frutos para que lá frente podemos colher bons frutos.
    Se ter maus frutos colherá maus frutos.
    Por isso que temos que estar bem na presença de DEUS.

    Thank you Mrs Nanda. It’s true, many times we think we can solve and do things alone, but our strength is not real strength unless it comes from Him.

    I’ve been a person that depended on my own strength for a while I was not only doing my part but doing God part as well i am learning to let go because I can’t do it all by myself and it’s time to let God do his part and I concentrate on mine and depends totally on God

    Thank you Ms, thank you for this. It’s very true and one word I have been thinking about for a while is the word ‘abide’ because when we abide in Him His character is clearly shown through us!

    Jesus is everything to us, When one knows his position as a servant and Jesus position as his Master , one never stop striving to bear fruit to please the Master our Lord Jesus.

    Bom dia! O Senhor Jesus diz que pelos seus frutos lhe conhecereis, por isso a importância de sermos seladas com o Espírito Santo. Pra termos bons frutos, muito forte!

    é Verdade quando estamos em Cristo e vivemos para ele o resto é acrescentado, não tem como querer servi-lo e não obedece-lo não ficar na dependência dele e crer que tudo dará certo porque se você é fiel ele com Certeza honrará !

    É verdade sem o Senhor Jesus não dá pra viver, sem Ele, apenas existimos mas não há sentido uma existência sem o Senhor Jesus, me lembro claramente de como era minha vida antes de ter um encontro com Deus, nada tinha graça, nada fazia sentido,e não tinha nenhum lugar no mundo em que eu me sentisse bem, mas quando O encontrei aí então eu achei a vida, o sentido eu achei o meu lugar , achei Jesus.

    Teve momentos em minha vida que me vi completamente distante de Deus, e pude ali perceber que não sei viver sem Ele, me sentia fraca e sem vida, claro pois não recebia a seiva que é o Espirito Santo! eu não sei viver longe de DEUS ! #DesafioGodllywood

    Pura verdade Eu aprendi que eu preciso para ser dependente de Deus e independente de mim mesmo.

    Deus abençoe!

    I was just meditating on the same verses earlier. I’ve already attempted doing things on my own without depending on God and failed countless times. Its when I stopped and realized that I’ve failed so much time then the HS showed to me that I’m doing things without asking Him to intervene.
