Dependence Upon God

For without me ye can do nothing. John 15:5, last part.

The first lesson to be taught … is the lesson of dependence upon God…. As a flower of the field has its root in the soil; as it must receive air, dew, showers, and sunshine, so must we receive
from God that which ministers to the life of the soul.

The presence of God is guaranteed to the Christian. This Rock of faith is the living presence of God. The weakest may depend upon it.

Those who think themselves the strongest may become the weakest unless they depend on Christ as their efficiency, their worthiness. This is the Rock upon
which we may build successfully.

God is near (etymologically Chukwunonso: an Igbo traditional name) in Christ’s atoning sacrifice, in His intercession, His loving, tender ruling power over the church.

Seated by the eternal throne, He watches them with intense interest. As long as the members of the church shall through faith draw sap and nourishment from Jesus Christ, and not from man’s opinions and devisings and methods; if having a conviction of the nearness of God in Christ, they put their entire trust in Him, they will have a vital connection with Christ as the branch has connection with the parent stock.

The church is established not on theories of men, on long- drawn-out plans and forms. It depends upon Christ their righteousness. It is built on faith in Christ, “and the gates of hell shall not prevail
against it.” …

The strength of every soul is in God and not in man. Quietness and confidence is to be the
strength of all who give their hearts to God.

Christ has not a casual interest in us but an interest stronger than a mother for her child….

Our Saviour has purchased us by human suffering and sorrow, by insult, reproach, abuse, mockery,
rejection, and death. He is watching over you, trembling child of God. He will make you secure
under His protection…. Our weakness in human nature will not bar our access to the heavenly
Father, for He [Christ] died to make intercession for us.
