Principle # 3

#3 Depend on Christ

Consciously choose to commit all my life and will to Christ's care and control.

What are some of the things we depend on each day? When we have bad breath we depend on toothpaste or gum, when we have a headache we depend on aspirin, when the sun is bright it's sunglasses, and when we have dandruff we depend on Head & Shoulders. We are dependent beings, not independent individuals. We depend on other people like parents, teachers, youth leaders and the list goes on. Yet, what about God? Do we depend on God and for what do we depend on Him for?

Step three is about turning our lives over to the care of Christ. Turn & Action are found in step three. We turn to Christ as the answer and depend on Him with every action we take. It's like walking through a door, first you must open the door, then walk through it. By this point we have opened the door to our hearts and now it is time to depend on Christ to do the rest...

"Hear I am! I stand at the door and knock If anyone hearts My voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with him, and he with Me." 
~ Revelations 3:20
