God is not dependent upon man for the support of his cause. He could have sent means direct from Heaven to supply his treasury, if his providence had seen that this was the best for man. He might have devised means whereby angels would have been sent to publish the truth to the world without the agency of men. He might have written the truth upon the heavens, and let that declare to the world his requirements in living characters. . . . God does not need us. We Need Him!:  God does not need us. We Need Him! …Whatever necessity there is for our agency in the advancement of the cause of God, he has purposely arranged for our good. He has honored us by making us co-workers with him. He has ordained that there should be a necessity for the co-operation of men, that they may keep in exercise their benevolent affections. RH, August 25, 1874 par. 32 God is not dependant on us:  God is not dependant on us The Lord could carry forward His work without our co-operation. He is not dependent on us for our money, our time, or our labor. But the church is very precious in His sight. It is the case which contains His jewels, the fold which encloses His flock, and He longs to see it without spot or blemish or any such thing. He yearns after it with unspeakable love. This is why He has given us opportunities to work for Him, and He accepts our labors as tokens of our love and loyalty. 6T 261.3 Service a Blessing:  Service a Blessing “It is only as we fulfill the divine purpose in our creation that life can be a blessing to us. All the good gifts of God to man will prove only a curse, unless he employs them to bless his fellow men, and for the advancement of God’s cause in the earth.” RH, October 31, 1817 par. 12 Slide56:  So why do anything if God doesn’t need us? Slide57:  So the question is: How can we use the technologies God has given us to build up His kingdom? The answer is: We can’t! Two Paths to Knowledge:  Two Paths to Knowledge Testing and Seeing the Power of God Experimental Knowledge Trusting in Man’s Reason Intellectual Knowledge Slide59:  So how do we serve the body?
