Stay Close to Jesus
Passage: John 15:1–15:17
Having invited us to come and follow him so that he can give rest to our religion-weary souls, Jesus tells his followers to STAY near him (actually ‘in’ him) so that we can live a joy-filled, vibrant, fruitful life. Jesus’ death provided access to the holy of holies. Now, it is our joy to engage in his presence deeply and continue in that place of rest and peace.
