Bible Topics: Independence

Definition: Freedom from outside control or support; being self-governing. In the negative sense, it is unwillingness to be under obligation to the Lord or others, epitomized by the phrase "do your own thing."

1. As we mature and become more responsible, the Lord entrusts us with a measure of independence.

2. Even when trusted with independence, we are to operate in cooperation and unity with the body of believers.

3. Jesus taught His disciples to work together, not independently.

4. Unity and cooperation were cornerstones of the Early Church.

5. Independence is an ungodly trait.

6. Independence undermines unity, which is our strength.

7. Independence leads to other problems and a departure from God's will.

8. Those who try to operate independently lose the benefit of others' counsel.

9. And independent attitude nearly always indicates a lack of submissiveness, due to pride.

10. Those who can't work with others can seldom work with God either.

11. As the Lord's disciples, we are called to be servants -- and servants are not independent.

12. Unity in the Spirit, mind and heart should be supreme -- then unity in body will naturally follow.

Dear Visitor, if this article or website has been a blessing to you, would you please consider to send me a gift through Paypal for my support toward my Gospel ministry? I am nearly 68 years old and just moved to Guam to start a new life and ministry of service to God's Kingdom with my new bride Tess! The Lord Jesus blessed me beyond my dreams to give me a wife who is not only beautiful, intelligent, and younger than me, she also loves the LORD Jesus with all her heart and soul and seeks first the Kingdom of God!

We are now living with an 80 old lady who graciously is sharing her house with us at only $300 a month! The next priority is for us to find a steady means of income. Till then, your love gifts are greatly appreciated.

I am also the webmaster of jamesjpn.net and you can read my bio on it.

You can send to my Paypal account: james.arendt@deeptruths.com

Because Deep Truths is not an official charity recognized by Paypal, please do not designate the funds as a "donation" for Paypal has rules against non-registered charities receiving gifts. It should be designated for "services rendered without shipping."

I hope you find this website a blessing.

Sincerely in Christ,
James Arendt
Webmaster of Deep Truths in Niigata City, Japan.
