I was in an intense season of hustling and striving. My to-do list was never-ending and I was drowning in thoughts that I wasn’t doing enough. It was then that the Lord gently led me to study John 15 where Jesus gives final instructions to His disciples before His death on the cross. Does He give them a lengthy to-do list or detailed military strategy for the struggles they’ll face ahead? No. In 3 power-packed words Jesus gives them all the instruction they’d need:
Abide in Me.
Jesus’ simple instruction frees us from placing unrealistic and unnecessary expectations on ourselves and leads us to a more free, joyful, and fruitful life.
