Nothing Doing

Jesus made many outlandish statements.  Here is one of them:  “Apart from me you can do nothing.”  But notice that Jesus did not say that apart from Him you cannot do anything.  There is a huge difference.


People do a great deal apart from Jesus.  They build organizations, acquire wealth, attain positions of honor and prestige.  Apart from the love and direction of God’s Son, however, these accomplishments – Jesus said – amount to nothing.  Nothing, then, is actually something … it’s something that’s nothing.


Every day I must check myself, making sure I’m connected to Christ, therefore living a life that is worthwhile.  I want nothing to do with doing nothing.
