John 15:5
                                                                Apart from me you can do nothing.
Yesterday I held Eli greatness begins in my hands for the first time.  This is one of the greatest accomplishments I have done in my life.   Yesterday I also heard words that were sweet to my ears. My daughter Rebecca said them.  “Dad I am proud of you.”  With all of the adulation that was going on I was feeling pretty good about myself.   It was in that period of time I was reminded of something. I was reminded that apart from Christ I can do nothing.  The contrary is also true.  Philippians 4:13 states, “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.  That my friend is what we really have to remember in the accomplishment we achieve in this life.  It’s not we who are accomplishing anything in this life. It’s Christ through us that brings the greatness in us out.  You see when he accomplishes something great through us the Glory must go back to him.  So remember this. Everything we do in word or deed   we must do in the name of Christ Jesus our lord. Father’s greatness through the Son by the spirit will be accomplished when we do so.
Go in peace
