Something struck me yesterday while reading the Bible and I thought to share it with you guys.
“Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.”
John 15: 5
“I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.”
The verse in Revelation tells us all that Jesus received: blessing, power, might, etc. John 15:5 tells us that He is the Vine and we are the branches. If the Vine has all the blessing, power, might, etc, then we have access to these things because we are part of the Vine.
Food for thought:
There are other illustrations like Jesus is the Head of the Church which we are.
Acts 17:28 “For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.”
