The Problem With Self-Sufficiency (Revelation 3:15)

selfsufficiency-paper800 phillipians-4-19-copy

When we say we have everything we need, but Jesus isn’t at the top of the list, He is deeply offended. Self-sufficiency distracts us from pursuing the things we really need that only He (Jesus) can give. If you’d rather have cash than character, if your credit cards are maximized and your righteousness minimized, if you’ve become smart but aren’t wise, then you’ve been shopping in all the wrong places. Jesus offers commodities that are far better (Revelation 3:18).

He’s knocking at your heart’s door (v. 20). Let Him in. He will give you all really need! – Joe Stowell

We must be careful to avoid

All self-sufficiency;

If sinful pride gets in the way,

God’s hand we will not see. – Sper

We always have enough when God is our supply.
