‘This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.’ The words of Jesus to his disciples and us!
Much of what Jesus said was borne out of what he saw and how he interpreted what was around him. He took the simple, everyday and mundane, to shine a light on our lives and walk with God.
Too often I complicate my faith and make it unaccessible even to myself! Jesus simply states that how we are, with our hopes and fears and failings is a good starting point. How I am, how you are, can change not just my life, but others too.
Take an odd moment each day, just to think through these words of Jesus to you.
