What is the difference between independence and interdependence

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INDEPENDENCE AND INTERDEPENDENCE?


Danger ahead we could miss out

DANGER AHEAD!WE COULD MISS OUT

HEBREWS 3 - 4


Remember israel

REMEMBER ISRAEL

3:16-19 THEY ALL LEFT EGYPT

BUT HOW MANY REACHED THE PROMISED LAND?

THEY RESISTED GOD’S VOICE, PROVOKED HIM TO WRATH

THEY WERE UNWILLING TO BE PESUADED

AND REFUSED TO TRUST

SO THEY MISSED OUT


What can we miss out on

WHAT CAN WE MISS OUT ON?

4:1-10 GOD’S REST

SALVATION HAS BEEN PRESENTED AS:

1. TRAINING FOR RULING OVER THE COMING WORLD

2. FREEDOM FROM THE FEAR OF DEATH

AND NOW

3. SHARING IN GOD’S REST

REST = STOP DOING SOMETHING


What is the difference between independence and interdependence

REST

EXODUS 20:8-11 SIX DAYS YOU SHALL DO YOUR OWN WORK, BUT REST THE SEVENTH

GENESIS 2:2 GOD RESTED ON THE SEVENTH DAY

FOR SIX DAYS GOD WORKED ALONE

ON THE SEVENTH DAY HE CEASED WORKING ALONE

THE ALTERNATIVE IS PARTNERSHIP


Partnership

PARTNERSHIP

WHEN WE TAKE OVER THE RULE OF THE WORLD

WILL WE BE WORKING FOR GOD OR WITH HIM?

WILL HE ABDICATE AND LEAVE IT TO US?

REVELATION 3:21 WITH GOD

WE WERE CREATED FOR PARTNERSHIP

FROM THE BEGINNING GOD HAS BEEN CALLING PEOPLE INTO PARTNERSHIP

THIS IS THE HEAVENLY CALLING


Working with

WORKING WITH

AN ESSENTIAL ASPECT OF OUR TRAINING IS LEARNING TO WORK WITH GOD

THIS REQUIRES OBEDIENCE

“HEARING UNDER”

LEARNING TO LISTEN


Hard work

HARD WORK

4:11 REST MEANS REPLACING INDEPENDENCE WITH INTERDEPENDENCE

ANY AND ALL INDEPENDENT ACTION I NOW CLASSIFY AS SIN

I NEED TO WORK AT REST

IF I FAIL AT THIS POINT , LIKE THE ISREALITES, I WILL MISS OUT

THEY WERE UNWILLING TO BE PERSUADED


Persuasion about what

PERSUASION ABOUT WHAT?

THAT INTERDEPENDENCE WAS PREFERABLE TO INDEPENDENCE

THAT THEY WERE REDEEMED FOR GOD’S PURPOSE

THAT THE CALL OF GOD WAS NOT TO FREEDOM BUT TO BE INVOLVED WITH GOD IN ACHIEVING HIS WILL


Exposed by the word

EXPOSED BY THE WORD

4:12-13 LET THE WORD OF GOD WORK IN OUR LIVES

IT WILL DIG DEEP AND EXPOSE THE SOURCE OF OUR ACTIONS

IT WILL DIVIDE/SEPARATE BETWEEN THAT WHICH IS OF SELF [SOUL] -INDEPENDENCE

AND THAT WHICH IS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT [SPIRIT] - INTERDEPENDENCE


Willing to be persuaded

WILLING TO BE PERSUADED

4:14-16 WE NEED HELP

EXPOSURE SHOWS US THAT WE ARE INCAPABLE OF PARTNERSHIP ON OUR OWN

IF WE DID NOT KNOW THAT WE HAVE A HIGH PRIEST WHO EMPATHISES AND IS ALWAYS AVAILABLE WE WOULD GIVE UP IN DESPAIR

DON’T QUIT – PUT OUR CONFIDENCE IN JESUS
