John 15:1-7 “Nurturing the Life We Crave”


The relationship with God we crave can’t be manufactured, it must be nurtured.  Growing fruit is the job of the Holy Spirit (not me); we need only to stay connected to the source of life and allow the fruit to grow.  The fruit of the Spirit is not evidenced by what I DO, it is evidenced by who I AM.  There is a mutuality of God in me and me in God – an intertwining of life –  which yields a sweetness that fills a craving that can’t be satisfied by any other source.
