The Truth about Nothing

John 5:20 is a challenge to me.  If it is true that we are to follow Christ that we are to imitate Him, as Paul did and exhorts us in 1 Corinthians 11:1; then John 5:20 is my charge as well.  Further when we look at the familiar passage John 15:5 we see that apart from Christ we can do nothing.  We are commanded in John 15:5 to abide in Christ.  It looks to me, connecting the dots between, John 5:20 and John 15:5 that part of abiding must be to seek God’s will continually in all that I do as Christ did.
We do not want to accomplish nothing with our lives.  We do not want to leave a blank canvas...
We want our lives to count.  At least most of the folks I know want that.  What seems to be emerging here is a reality that says anything done apart from the will of God, apart from abiding in Christ, is essentially doing nothing.

I have done a lot of nothing in my life.  Even today.  Not interested in perpetuating that waste.
