Experiencing God: A Higher Calling!

April 17, 2013

“The community of God has no higher calling than to seize the opportunity to experience God. Our fiercest battles are fought when we seek with all our heart to trust God so fully that we see every misfortune as something he permits and wants to use, to know him so richly that we turn to no one and nothing else to experience what our souls long to enjoy, to love him so completely and with such consuming passion that we hate anything that comes between us and eagerly give it up.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Connecting, Page 150

Questions for Reflection:
How do you experience God?
What is your consuming passion?

  1. I think the statement “…no higher calling than to seize the opportunity to experience God.” may be slightly misdirected. It implies that we can manage things in such a way that our focus is maintained on Him. In practice, it is during the moments of our most complete surrender that we actually see the greatest things that God is doing.
