“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.”
John 15:5 (NKJV)
This story you are about to read of the two donkeys says it best…that we are absolutely and inevitably NOTHING without our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Enjoy!
Two donkeys were walking down the road in Jerusalem one day. One of the donkeys said, “Wow, Yesterday I was carrying Jesus on my back, people were hailing me, screaming and shouting, Hosanna! Hosanna!!
People even kept their clothes on the ground for me to walk on, and those who did not have any clothes had to put down palm leaves for me to walk on.
But today, when I walked through the same road, nobody recognizes me, and no one even said anything to me.”
The second donkey smiles and said, “Hmmmmm…. Don’t you know that you are nothing without Jesus?”
