“I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener...I am the vine; you are the branches. If you abide in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:1,5 Scattered throughout the book of John are the seven “I AM” statements of Jesus. I have spent the last several months studying these powerful words. I have found that Jesus carefully taught His disciples everything they needed to know.

“Remember His marvelous works which He has done, His wonders, and the judgements of His mouth, O seed of Abraham His servant, You children of Jacob, His chosen ones!” Ps. 105:5 Here we stand on Good Friday 2021. He has sustained us through many toils and sorrows. He has provided everything that we need. He is who He says that He is. Let us give Him praise! Today, we remember. We remember the cross. Will you pause with me a little longer today and remember? Remember God. Remem
