Fix Our Eyes On Unseen Reality

“In any serious attempt to build true community, we will wrestle with confusion, disappointment and, occasionally, excruciating agony of soul. Those struggles will compel us to fix our eyes on unseen reality – the Spirit is at work, and to believe in a better day ahead – Christ is coming back.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, When God’s Ways Make No Sense, “The Consolable Longing,” pg 159

Questions for Reflection:
• Take some time this week to read the Gospels’ accounts of Jesus’ final week before the cross.
• What dynamics were taking place within His community that week?
• How did He response to confusion, disappointment, and agony of soul during those days?
• As you engage in community, how are you impacted my His response to death and by the reality of His resurrection?

The Spirit Is Carrying Your Groans To The Throne

“If your heart cries out for an experience of Christ that changes the way you relate to others, the Spirit is carrying your groans to the throne room. God’s answer may require that we patiently seek out a few people who are weeping over the present state of Christian community and will risk everything to see the glory revealed. It may require that we disturb some parts of the evangelical establishment by not cooperating with their efforts to achieve less.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Becoming a True Spiritual Community, “It’s Worth the Risk,” pg 158

Questions for Reflection:
• Which draws you more, the thought of seeking out others who lament the current state of Christian community and are willing to pursue God’s glory revealed in His people, regardless of the cost, or idea of no longer cooperating with lesser goals of the evangelical establishment?
• Why? What does that look like for you?
• Whatever action you feel drawn toward, is it shaped first by your longing to change how you relate so that Christ is more fully revealed to others?
• Take courage today that the Holy Spirit is interceding for you, that you may become more like Jesus.

Exciting News–Larry Crabb Webinar

We’re eager to let you in on some exciting news!

Larger Story Webinar

For years, Larry has invited us to consider what it means to live in God’s larger story. Unlike our smaller stories, that tempt us to view God, ourselves and others through the lens of our everyday circumstances, a connection to God’s larger story roots and grows our faith in the transcendent love story we see in the Bible.

LARGER STORY

We are excited to announce the launch of ‘Larger Story’, a non-profit ministry, created to come alongside spiritually hungry people as they find joy in the midst of heartache, hope even in despair, and faith in the middle of doubt – all through learning to relate like Jesus as together we move His larger story forward.

Larry and his son Kep will begin offering NEW content through the Larger Story, allowing Larry’s content to be more accessible to a broader online audience.

Never Settle For Less

“If you have caught a glimpse of what community could be and find yourself weeping over what community now is, God’s word to you is this: ‘Be strong. Don’t give up. I am with you. The glory of the spiritual community is being slowly revealed and will one day fill the heavens. Never settle for less.'”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Becoming a True Spiritual Community, “It’s Worth the Risk,” pg 158

Questions for Reflection:
• What do you long to see God do among His people?
• How can you be a part of that?
