Dependence on God

Happy Independence Day everyone! Take a moment and thank God for the freedoms and liberties we all enjoy in this great nation. For apart from Him we cannot stand. Pastor Carl taught us that in our independence as a nation we must stay dependent on God as His people. The very word independence means not being dependent or under obligation to any other rule. That works from our national point of view but it is the opposite of what our Christian point of view should be. Through faith in Jesus Christ, we are citizens of His eternal Kingdom. We are not to be independent from God but rather “In-Dependence of God.” God may Your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven, Amen!

As you start your week, read and reflect on the following scriptures and ask the Holy Spirit to grow in you a dependence IN HIM, THROUGH HIM, and FOR HIM.
