The Vine and His Branches (John 15:1-8) We live in a short-term world where we're led to believe that there's a quick fix to just about any problem. We want to think that way about ourselves as well: that God (or we, if we're really faithful) can fix our problems so that we can make the changes we want all in one quick move. In today's Gospel lesson, Jesus presents us with a frustrating image of what life in him is really like. But . . . it's one that better addresses our lives and demonstrates more deeply his love.
