Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

July 05, 2011 (Declaration of Dependence)

Declaration of Dependence

Yesterday we, in the United States of America,
celebrated our Declaration of Independence.

Our freedom is precious to us
but sometimes I think,
it has made us too proud of our
own self-reliance.

Everything that we have comes from God.

Whatever happened to…
”In God we trust”?

It is time to declare (or re-declare)
a Declaration of Dependence to God.

“Self-righteousness is the worst of sins because it is unbelief.
It trusts in self rather than God.
It trusts in self to determine what is right and wrong
and to determine who does what is right or wrong.
Self-righteousness claims to be both lawgiver and judge,
prerogatives that belong only to the Lord.”
- John MacArthur
