For Those Who "Can't Do It"

Only one life, tis soon be past,
Only what's done for Christ will last!

I like to think of this year as being my last and constantly ask myself "is this how you want to live your last year?"

I wonder if I mustered with all my might to pull something together in this last year that would make my God pleased how well would I do? We all know it would be pitiful. It would be full of strife, anxiety, selfishness, and a me centered existence! I can't do it and then again neither could Jesus.

Joh 5:19 Jesus gave them this answer: "I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.

Joh 15:5  I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.

Jesus is our example. He could not walk by his own strength and wisdom so let us not fool ourselves silly in thinking we can. So there is a great hope for those who come to realize they can't do it. It consists of the spirit of God living and dwelling in you which we receive by faith!
Gal 3:2  This only would I learn of you, Received ye the Spirit by the works of the law, or by the hearing of faith?

However, we must be clean and walk in the light for "If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:" 1Jn 1:6
But, do not be discouraged believe on Jesus and Trust Him. For if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness 1Jn 1:9.  He is your daddy and He knows how to teach his children to walk. Trust Him and continue to rise when you fall! Believe in His grace and walk according to His glorious light! I say let us rise again in faith so that all may know that our God is faithful.

Truly there is only one way and that is by the Spirit. There is only one Hope and that is Jesus' blood. So let us eat of His life. Let us Walk by faith and exchange our pitiful life that "can't do it" for His blessed perfect spirit that can!

For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.  He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever. Joh 6:55-58 Consume Him and Him alone. Allow Him to be your only bread for the worlds bread will surely clog your system and quench the living water within.

So let us be encouraged Php 4:13  I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Therefore,   Quench not the Spirit. 1Th 5:19

I am determined that if this life is going to be of any use to the Kingdom of God it will be only by His wonderful, glorious spirit within. To God be All Glory!

Only one life, tis soon be past, 
Only what's done for Christ will last! 

I Love You All
