You can do it…really?

I have been reading through Matthew. There is a sense that Jesus is getting rid from his disciples any attitude that they are able to do anything for him from their own resilience, and self ability.

You feed the crowds he tells them. Twice! You go ahead across the lake without me, and I’ll meet you there…but, they can’t make much distance because the wind is against them.

We are able to do all things through Christ who strengthens us; only when we realize the truth that we are not able to do it from our own resources.

Look not to ourselves – but to him who is able to do immeasurably more than we think, imagine, say, and pretend he is able to do through us.
