Independence, Good or Bad?

SCRIPTURE

But see here, you who live in your own light and warm yourselves from your own fires and not from God’s; you will live among sorrows.

~Isaiah 50:11, TLB

QUOTE

The ultimate slavery is total independence from God.

~Ya’akov

my thoughts red

In our nation, independence–the freedom to speak, write, assemble and worship without fear of persecution– is a prized possession and make no mistake about it, I am a patriot and a lover of freedom but understand that true freedom can only be found in Christ. Those who seek to live independently of Christ are of all men, the greatest slaves. What is a guitar string detached from the guitar? Can it fulfill it’s purpose independently of the guitar? No, a guitar string is totally dependent on the guitar.

Can you fulfill your intended purpose a part from Christ and His body? Isaiah said, those who refuse to trust the LORD walk in darkness. They try to compensate by building their own fires and creating their own light but there is no peace for the wicked [those who rebel against God]. The ultimate reward for those who refuse to trust in Christ is misery, sorrow and torment. There is no freedom in hell.

  • Another late night at the ball park: you know grand kids are special when you see a good man like Billy Parker watching his grandson from a wheel chair. You know how to spot Senior Adults at the ball park: we are the ones wearing coats.
  • GOLDEN GIRLS Saturday at 9:30 a.m. Cracker Barrel in Hartselle.
  • Get a ROSE for Mom this Sunday. Mother’s day just one week from Sunday.
  • Senior Day May 17th a.m. Worship. We have more high school seniors this year than we’ve ever had at DBC. I think it is either 19-20.
  • HELP WANTED! If you will work in VBS, see Mandy. We are having a hard time recruiting workers this year.
