The vine and the branches.

Jesus came on earth to share our life. He grew up, worked, died-all this the better to share his life with us. United with him, we have superhuman powers, and are superhuman beings, destined for eternal happiness with God.

Blood transfusions or heart transplants may save human lives, but that life remains merely human. Jesus offers to take us not to another planet or a distant star but to another level of reality-we are now Godís children. Do I make myself miserable because I do not have some lesser gifts such as beauty, brains, wealth or popularity? One day I will lack nothing: but meanwhile I have what is most important-Christ himself. Dear Lord, help me to be content.
