When we diminish our sinfulness without Christ, we diminish our love for Him. Then our service is diminished, and our worship is diminished, and we are on a downhill slide. Jesus said in John 15:5 (NLT), “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing.” Mylon Lefevre wrote these amazing lyrics, “Without Him I could do nothing, Without Him I'd surely fail, Without Him I would be drifting like a ship without a sail.” When we see our depravity without Him, we appreciate more the sacrifice He made for us and all He has given us.
