DAILY READINGS: Numbers 4:1-49; Proverbs 1; Mark 14:1-26

For without me ye can do nothing. John 15:5b
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. Philippians 4:13

What a striking contrast the above two verses present to us. It should serve as a deeply challenging admonition to us! Think about it. Without Him “nothing.” With Him “all things!” Yet so often we forge ahead  serving Christ in our own strength, only to fail. His strength alone enables us to serve Him. The realization of this truth will humble us, and cause us to give Him the glory He is due. —E. V.

We go in faith, our own great weakness feeling,
And needing more each day, Thy grace to know:
Yet from our hearts a song of triumph pealing,
“We rest on Thee, and in Thy Name we go.” —E. G. Cherry
