Jackson Five Friday: No Can Do

Happy Friday, Friends!

Do you ever stop to ponder the words of Jesus, “apart from me you can do nothing”?  Because honestly it’s such a grounding concept, such a pride killer.  I can’t take another breath on my own.  I can’t type another word.  I can’t do one good thing, not one.

I want to share the love of Jesus with others who may not know Him, but I also desperately need people in my life who live out the truth of John 15.  I need people who point to Christ instead of taking credit, people who abide in the vine and try hard not to forget that is what we are called to do.  Because honestly I am bummed out by people who bypass the truth and try to take the glory for themselves.  It’s not the way it works.  I find it terribly unbecoming, and I abhor my own propensity for it.  So I need people in my life who will preach it to me the way it is, a la Hall and Oates if need be.  I imagine we all do.  Because in so many words, God says, “Child, are you trying to take the credit?  No can do.  I can’t go for that.”

But I can’t go for that, nooo
(No)
No can do
I can’t go for that, nooo
(No)
No can do
I can’t go for that, nooo
(No)
No can do
I can’t go for that
Can’t go for that
Can’t go for that
Can’t go for that, yeah

In the end, our all-loving, all-knowing God will get all the credit, whether we give it to Him now or not.  May I be faithful to give Him every ounce of the glory and may God give me a supernatural love for those who do not.

Have a great weekend giving God all the glory and thanks!

Love,

Kristie
