I've got some bad news for the self-sufficient and some good news for the weak. I'll just go ahead and put it out there ... be blunt ... no beating around the bush...
God does not need you.
Yes, that is the bad news and the good news all in one whopper of a sentence!
Let me show you why this is true:
"The God who made the world and all things in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands; nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed anything, since He Himself gives to all people life and breath and all things." (Acts 17:24, 25)
Did you get that?
God isn't served by human hands ... as if He needed anything.
God doesn't need me ... God wants me.
