You can't do it on your own

The message of the world is: "You can do it alone! You are strong enough! Believe in yourself!"
While, there is a lot of merit in having a positive attitude, the message of the Gospel is that we CAN'T do it alone.
We need one another.
We need to rely on Jesus.
Our Salvation is not dependent on our own ability.

All these things are not a sign of weakness, but rather of trusting in the strength of God and of being part of the body of Christ. 

Jean Vanier once marked - "Life comes from the recognition that I CAN'T do it on my own."

Next time you are tempted to 'go it along' ask yourself if that is for the best? Is this what God would want from you? Is there someone you can ask to help you?

1 Corinthians 12:27 - Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.

Living in Grace
