Purpose Together, enter dependent, not dependent!


One of the biggest impediments to achieving purpose, even for believers, is over-reliance on ourselves. We think we can do what God has called us to do by ourselves. Not true! Purpose requires partnership, and we are God’s handymen in carrying out His plans for the world. 

21 The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!” 22 On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable 1 Cor. 12:21-22 (NIV) 

God created us for purpose and on purpose; interdependent, not independent. God had Jesus, and Esther had Mordecai. Paul had Timothy, and Peter had John Mark. In Acts 8:30-40, The Ethiopian eunuch had Phillip. In 1 Kings, Elijah had Elisha. In 2 Kings, Elisha had Gehazi in Matthew 28:19-20 Jesus had the disciples. 

Who do you have? And who has you? Note that you should have a fellow believer to stand with you, not an unbeliever. 

Are you trying to accomplish your purpose on your own? It’s not possible. Once you are clear on your goal, it will help you determine who should be the people to join with you. 

To identify trusted, helpful people think about who in your life currently supports your ideas and seeks to encourage you? They won’t tear you down. There won’t be selfish goals but togetherness.

You may not have realized it, but perhaps these are the people God has placed in your life to assist you in fulfilling your unique purpose.

Deep Roots Ministries International, Inc.

What does Deep Roots Ministries do? We encourage believers to grow spiritually in Christ by discipleship. Continuing the works Jesus did. How do we do that? We study God’s Word to develop a Biblical worldview. Scriptures identify God’s plan for our lives. God’s will to us is revealed in His Word. Together we spend time reading the Bible and studying the Truths of the Word of God. Where do you do this? In our home and others homes with family and friends (small groups), teaching videos, and meetings. Where we are invited to share. Colossians 2:6-7 And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. 7 Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
