Independence! It’s something we all value. Two year olds grasp at it, eighty-year olds want to keep it, and teenagers can’t wait to get it. We want to make our own decisions, be our own person. Yet, dependence is a vital part of God’s plan. We’re dependent on Christ to forgive us, and dependent on the Holy Spirit to grow in our faith. As fellow believers we are taught to depend on each other; and Jesus said He did nothing on His own initiative, only what the Father told him to do.
I want to learn to be more dependent… on Jesus.
