Full Abandonment, Real Trust

November 19, 2014

“We will not encounter Christ as our best friend, as the source of all true goodness, as the One who provides the sweetest pleasure to our souls, until we abandon ourselves to Him. And full abandonment, real trust, rarely happens until we meet God in the midst of shattered dreams, until in our brokenness we see in Him the only and overflowingly sufficient answer to our soul’s deepest cry.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Shattered Dreams, Page 172-173

Questions for Reflection:
• In what areas of your life are you holding on to other things, perhaps good things, as your source of goodness and pleasure in ways that keep you from abandoning yourself to Christ?
• What freedom might result in your life and what power might be released to others if you embrace Christ as your greatest treasure?
• Would you be willing today to ask God to reveal Himself to you as “the only and overflowingly sufficient answer to [your] soul’s deepest cry”?
