Only Then Will You Be Deeply Changed

January 8, 2015

“Only when you are so grieved by the raw evil of your ongoing self-obsession that My glory overwhelms you with desire to love like My Son will you deeply change. Only then will the incomparable beauty of His character become visible in the way you relate.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, 66 Love Letters, Page 131

Questions for Reflection:
• Do you tend to view your sin primarily as a violation of right standards or as a injury to the heart of God and others?
• How might a deeper realization of the grief your sin causes for God and others also stir greater appreciation for grace and a passionate longing to love well?
• Take time to consider an area of ongoing struggle with sin in your life.
• Ask the Lord to give you a vision both of how your sin impacts others and of how His life in you gives you an opportunity to love well instead of continuing in bondage to sin.
