Class 301R

Recorded Desperate Dependency Class Cohorts

Do you feel like something is missing in your life?

Do you have problems and issues that don’t seem to have a solution?

Have people, positions, and possessions disappointed you?

Do you feel like you are floundering in your relationship with Christ? Or perhaps you have no relationship with Christ.

What difference is there in your life because you say you are a Christian? Have you realized that you cannot successfully live independently from Jesus? Have you discovered His divine enablement that produces personal empowermentChrist wants to be relevant to every area of your life. Will you let Him? Will you be desperately dependent?

When you look around, and perhaps if you look within, you can easily find people who seem desperate as they depend on a variety of creative solutions to experience satisfaction and fill the void in their hearts. Unfortunately, even Christians fail to recognize God’s design of a relationship that is desperately dependent on Jesus to complete their lives.

Our heavenly Father has designed us for a relationship that is desperately dependent on Jesus. Only when we embrace this relationship will we find satisfaction and a way to fill the void in our hearts.

Desperate Dependency identifies the deceptions we believe and points our searching souls to Christ, the only One who is relevant and sufficient to deal with the intricacies of life’s problems and pain. As we submit to His purpose of transforming us into the image of Christ, we will experience His promised fruit including love, joy, and peace.

Desperate Dependency challenges you to:

  • Evaluate the means you seek to be complete.
  • Understand that God’s design offers the only solution for experiencing fulfillment.
  • Move into a transforming relationship with Jesus Christ.

  • Reorganize your life while finding Christ relevant to every area of living.
  • Complete the Insight Journal designed to help you connect with God in a deeper way.
