How we live

“Not one day, not one temptation, not one responsibility may we take on without the Lord Jesus. Our truly good works are never our own. They are always the result of Jesus living in us. They are the 'fruit' of the spiritual nutrients coming from the divine life of Jesus. If we are truly loving to others, if we are patient and kind, if we give sacrificially, if we help the weak, if we encourage the disheartened, even if we give a cup of cold water—all is to be done from the life of Jesus in us. He is the eternal fountain of righteousness pouring forth from our lives.”—John Coblentz in The Victorious Life page 103

That is soooo true! I can only survive each day by the power and strength of Jesus living inside via the Holy Spirit.
