A Daily Devotion for Friday, January 22


John 5:30-38


verse 30: “By myself I can do nothing. I judge only as I hear, and my judgement is just, for I seek not to please myself but him who sent me.“

I have to admit, today’s passage brings up many more questions for me than answers or insights. I look forward to reading the thoughts of others. Verse 30 surprised me, when I read Jesus’ words: “By myself I can do nothing.” It is almost as if we are hearing the Jesus who is fully man, without the “fully divine.” Jesus is pointing out where his power originates. As Jesus the man, he is only a man. We are all as powerless as Jesus the man, until we accept God’s spirit.

Holy Father, help me to experience your power dwelling in me. Help me to utilize your Spirit for good whenever I have the opportunity. Teach me more, Lord. Amen
