I don’t need any help, I don’t need anyone, I Got This! Have you ever said anything like this? I know I have. With a loud and proud voice we can easily say things like this, can’t we? When the truth is without our God we can do nothing. In John 15:5, Jesus states this truth: “Apart from me you can do nothing.” The preposition is “apart” from Jesus. The result is: nothing, not anything, not single thing without Jesus, nothing of value, is possible!
This is real discipleship — complete dependence on Christ in everything. Our lives should be Christ-sufficient and not self-sufficient. This is the only way to bear fruit as his true disciple.
Living in complete dependence on Christ requires great humility on our part. We must daily humble ourselves before him, and acknowledge that apart from him we can do nothing.
Apart from Christ, we do not have the ability to bear fruit; he has all earthly and spiritual treasures, and can supply everything and anything from his abundant fullness.
May God help us to humble ourselves before him, ask him for help, and see much fruit as we live our lives with Christ, and not apart from him.
Let’s make it our goal, each and every day to depend on God…lean on Jesus.
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6 NKJV
Remember, when we get to the point where we think “I Got This”, I can do it alone, I don’t need any help. “Casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” I Peter 5:7 NKJV. Just give it to the one who is in control. HE’S GOT THIS!!!
I can’t wait to see you!
