"God Glorified in Man's Dependence"
In yesterday's sermon, I spoke at length about dependence on God. The Lord wants his people to be dependent on him, and he gives them good reasons why they should be dependent on him. As we said yesterday, this is the kindness of God.
I didn't have time in the sermon to talk about how our dependence glorifies God, but this is one of the reasons why we should pursue such dependence. It glorifies God. Jonathan Edwards, the great 18th century theologian and pastor, had much to say on this topic. His sermon "God Glorified in Man's Dependence" is the most helpful resource I have ever read on this kind of dependent life. I commend it to you for your further study and consideration!
