"Greatness" London Blog #9

Greatness gets displayed in a showcase history calls the Olympics. It is a place in time where men and women compete with seemingly superhuman strength. And while some claim their success springs from man-made ability, others claim their success springs from God-given opportunity. Meanwhile, we stand as spectators who may never compete on this world's stage, but who will experience our own degree of greatness from time to time. And as we move from one great moment to the next, we too are faced with crediting our success as either man-made or God-given. How will each of us credit our own moments of greatness? In John 15:5, Jesus says, "Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing."
