Most parents celebrate when their children grow up and become more independent. But Christians are completely dependent on the One who has provided the only way to heaven. As we depended on our Saviour to save us, we grow in like fashion. Paul reminded the Christians of His day, “As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him.” This means that we are to live our lives trusting the One who is our Saviour. Proverbs advises, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” Independence in life has its merits, but not when it keeps us from being wholly dependent on our Saviour.
