Jesus said Follow Me. May 9, 2018

Jesus Said Follow Me..........
I am the vine and you are the branches. As long as you remain in me and I in you, you bear much fruit; but apart from me you can do nothing. (John 15:1).

A woman went to the Priest and said, I won't be attending Church anymore.. 

He said, may I ask why??
She said, I see people on their cell phones during service, some are gossiping, some just aren't living right, they are all just hypocrites.

The Priest got silent, and he said, OKAY... But can I ask you to do something for me before you make your final decision?
She said, what's that?

He said, take a glass of water and walk around the Church two  times and don't let any water fall out from the glass.

She said, yes I can do that. She came back and said it's done.

He asked her 3 questions.
1. Did you see anybody on their phone? 
2. Did you see anybody gossiping?
3. Was anybody living wrong?

She replied, I didn't see anything because I was too focused on this glass, so the water wouldn't fall

Priest : When you come to Church , you should be just that focused on God , so that YOU don't fall.

THAT'S WHY JESUS SAID "FOLLOW ME,". He did not say "follow Christians"

Jesus is the source of our fecundity and therefore, to be attached to Him is to be fruitful. Otherwise, our lives will be sterile, devoid of results that leads to joy. Life is meaningless and bland. Our attachment to Him is not borne out of emotion alone. It is too unstable for us to maintain allegiance to him. It is neither an intellectual clinging to Him who gives meaning to our lives.
