I do my math and computer-related research. I bear a great fruit.
However, how could I do it without Intel who produced the CPU of my computer, without Linus and friends who produced Linux which runs my computer, without Web browsers, without a text editor, etc.?
Sometimes I was puzzled: When I create something by “gluing” parts together, is it really my own creation? Or is it a creation of them who made the parts?
Even if I would do an origami, the paper which is done from is composed of zillions atoms, every one controlled by a complex formula. Is this bend paper my creation? Or it is rather of God?
I also thought: I am a sinner, not a computer. I need a computer to work with, I need the work of Linus and Intel. If I were myself a computer, not a sinner, would then it be my creation when I compose parts of something in my mind?
Today I have realized that Jesus gives an ultimate answer to my question (and yes, it will continue even after rapture when we will be transformed into computers):
(John 15) 4 Remain in me, and I in you. As the branch can’t bear fruit by itself, unless it remains in the vine, so neither can you, unless you remain in me. 5 I am the vine. You are the branches. He who remains in me, and I in him, the same bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If a man doesn’t remain in me, he is thrown out as a branch, and is withered; and they gather them, throw them into the fire, and they are burned.
So we can bear fruit only on the foundation of Christ.
