As flawed human beings we will always need God’s grace, mercy and strength

"You can be as obedient as Abraham, as faithful as Joseph, as humble as Moses, as devoted as David, as wise as Solomon, and as strong as Samson - and you will still need to depend on God."

Happy Wednesday Saints.

In John 15:5, Jesus said, “I AM THE VINE, YOU ARE THE BRANCHES, IF YOU REMAIN IN ME AND I IN YOU, YOU WILL BEAR MUCH FRUIT; APART FROM ME YOU CAN DO NOTHING.”

Jesus was and is perfect in every way. He is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

The Bible is full of interesting and fascinating characters, but all of them, apart from Christ, were flawed and full of imperfections.

No one alive today is perfect. Your favourite preacher or teacher is imperfect. We all fall short of God’s glorious standard, and no matter how long you’ve been a Christain, you will ALWAYS need Jesus.

Apart from Him, we can do NOTHING.

You can be as obedient as Abraham, as faithful as Joseph, as humble as Moses, as devoted as David, as wise as Solomon, and as strong as Samson – and you will still need to depend on God.

All of these Bible characters needed the Lord. And whenever they tried to do things on their own, they suffered the consequences.

Nobody is perfect. Only God is perfect. So, as flawed human beings, we will ALWAYS need God’s mercy, grace, and strength.

Apart from Him, we can do NOTHING.

Whatever you get up to today, remain IN CHRIST. He is the VINE that can enable you to BEAR MUCH FRUIT. Apart from Him, you can do nothing. And it’s only what is done by His grace and in His power that will ultimately glorify God.

Have a wonderful day. God bless and lots’a love,

Warren
