Seeds of Truth: John 15:5

 I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him,

he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.

Have you ever tried to accomplish things for God without His help? What happened? How does abiding in Him make a difference in your life?
