Jesus: apart from me you can do nothing

Dear Mosaic Family,


As we continue our sermon series through the "I Am" statements of Jesus Christ, we get to one of his most astonishing statement in the Gospel of John, chapter 15. In the context of proclaiming himself as the life-source of the universe ("I am the true vine"), Jesus shockingly says, "apart from me you can do nothing." Now, that's a staggering statement to make! Nothing? At first glance, there appear to be many things, many people do daily, apart from Jesus.

Lots of people are living as if God doesn't exist. Lots of people go to school apart from Christ, right? Lots of people make a living apart from Christ, right? Lots of people date, get married, have kids, raise families apart from Christ, right? 

Join us tomorrow as we meditate on John 15, and learn what Jesus meant when he said: apart from me you can do nothing, and we'll also learn that with him, we can lead lives of purpose, meaning, love, and maximum joy! 

In Christ,
Pastor Jan
