The Father and I are one

Yesterday's gospel bears witness to Jesus saying that anyone who believes in the Father will not only do good works but will do greater works than himself.  Today we hear him say 'without me you can do nothing'.  Appears paradoxical! 
On the one hand, there is the assurance that trust in God is all that is expected.  On the other is the demand to take the side of Jesus...

Looks confusing, but only if we miss another important lesson of the gospel:  The Father and I are one! Furthermore there is the assurance of Jesus: Remain in me, as I remain in you.
