God Created Us to Reflect His Character

June 25, 2014

“Life in Christ is all about relationships, with God, others, and ourselves.  When we reduce Christianity to a series of steps for handling life better or a set of truths to believe or a list of things to do, we miss the whole point of the gospel.

“God created us (and then re-created us) to enjoy His kindness and loving generosity and, in the strength of that enjoyment, to reflect His character by giving ourselves unselfishly to each other.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Understanding Who You Are, Page 5

Questions for Reflection:

• Do you think of Christianity as being primarily relational?
• Why or why not?
• In what ways has receiving God’s kindness given you the strength to offer yourself unselfishly to others?
