Apart From Jesus – You Can Do Nothing

And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?  (Matthew 6:27 How profound is this: we think of ourselves in terms of intelligence, power, resources… there is nothing we can’t do.  Profoundly wrong. We can’t even add one breath, one heart beat to our lives. We are nothing and we can do nothing apart from Christ our Creator:I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5, ESV)  Are you striving along through life thinking you can add something to life beyond what God has for you? Quit, let go, trust God. Only God determines our days; before our first day on earth, God knew the exact number of our days and the beats of our hearts.  Are you a ‘self made’ person? Were you made by God for God? Yes, exactly so, made by God for God. Amen
