The Jesus Within

The word Abide has been a big topic for me lately. Jesus and I have discussed it everyday, and I continue to learn and be intrigued. In John 15, it talks about the value of abiding:

I am the Vine, you are the branches; he who abides in Me and I in him, he bears much fruit, for apart from Me you can do nothing.

The "do nothing" says a lot, I think. To me it sounds like Jesus is saying He wants to abide within my heart and function for me. So that means I have to get out of the way, this is what He and I have been discussing. I've been asking Him to allow others to see Him and not me. But of course I notice that the "I" in me rears up and feels all kinds of fleshy feelings. More prayer, less of me.

The Jesus within me can do all things. There is great power given to me through Him.

If you Abide in me, and My Words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit, and so prove to be My disciples. Just as my Father has loved Me, I have also loved you; abide in My love.

Today I will continue to pray that Jesus will abide in me, and I in Him. Jesus, be my strength, words, thoughts, and all that I do today, Let others see you, not me! Say That Again!
