“We can” [Mark 10:39]

December 14, 2023

“We can”. ‘We can’ is a card that gets you anywhere. It knows no closed doors or separating barriers. The two words can be trotted out without thought to silence those who would prefer to first give more thought to the matter. They are the words of the mavericks, the self-opinionated, the lawless and blinkered members of society. I think they stem from the Garden of Eden where the serpent told Eve ‘God says you can’t, but you can’.
Jesus said, ‘Can you drink the cup that I drink of and be baptised with my baptism?’ The two disciples were obsessed with the thought of seats next to Jesus in His Kingdom, so in answer to His question they glibly said, ‘We can’. The others were ‘up in arms’ when they heard it.
The only way ‘you can’ is through Christ. As Paul said ‘I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me’.
