In Any Circumstance, No Matter What You Feel

December 17, 2014

“In the world you now inhabit, communion with Me is not defined by an experience of Me. Nor does it depend on blessings from Me.

To really live is to release My Son’s life through yours, in any circumstance, no matter what you feel; to relate as He related, giving when no one gives back, loving when no one returns love, forgiving when no one deserves forgiveness, suffering in the place of those who suffer.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, God’s Love Letters to You, Page 71

Questions for Reflection:
• How might your celebration of Christ’s birth change if your focus is not on experiencing His felt presence or visible blessings during the Advent season but rather on revealing Him to others?
• What would communion with Him entail for you if you spend time during the holidays with people who are a challenge to love?
