No Strength is Our Own

"For apart from Me you can do nothing," said Jesus in John chapter15 v.5. That doesn't only mean doing things of a spritual value, I learned, but it means doing anything at all. Apart from God I would not receive my next breath or heartbeat or be able to think a sane thought, or get out of this chair in which I write. We speak of doing or not doing things in "our own strength" but instead doing them in God's strength. But the truth is that even what we mean by our own strength is really God-given and therefore just another form of God's strength. We have no strength of our own period. It's always in Him we live and move and have our being naturally or spiritually, if there is any living or moving or being at all. (It's also true that He can live and move and have His being in us, miracle of miracles, though not in any sense depending on us for it like we do with Him, and that's when this Christian life really gets interesting and exciting!) May we come into a more and more conscious moment-by-moment dependence upon God for our sustenance spiritually AND naturally, and become a more deeply thankful people in the process of doing so.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
