Dependence Day – Sermon – July 03 2011
First, what does it mean to depend upon Him, to depend upon God? When the Phillippian jailer guarding the Apostle Paul and Silas in prison, was knocked out from an earthquake, and the prison cell doors were all open, he drew his sword to kill himself, before he was punished for letting the prisoners escape, until he saw that Paul and Silas were still in their cells, and the Jailer asked “What Must I do to be Saved”. What did this mean to be saved? When you celebrate Independence Day, do you also celebrate Independence from God? What do we depend upon God for?
