The Best Hope Survives the Worst Tragedy

June 20, 2012

“The best hope survives the worst tragedy. And it surfaces because of it: We can come into the presence of God to encounter Him, to join a community of broken, troubled seekers who want more of Him, and to be transformed by the Spirit till we actually resemble Jesus. No longer dying in the boiling water of demanded blessings, now swimming in the refreshing ocean of God’s presence–that’s life in the New Way.”

Larry Crabb, The Pressure’s Off, Pages 190-191

Question for Reflection:
Have you experienced what Dr. Crabb describes here? What did that look like for you?
