A Deeper Awareness of the Value We Have In His Plan

January 29, 2015

“It is through deep repentance – abandoning manipulative styles of relating in favor of risky involvement with others – that God is enjoyed and people are loved. Forgiveness of those who hurt and movement in whatever direction obedience requires are built on the foundation of repentance. The result is a deeper awareness of Christ’s love for us and the value we have in his plan for touching others.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Understanding People, Page 168-169

Questions for Reflection:
• In what ways have you confessed your sin against others but avoided the deeper repentance of abandoning manipulative styles of relating and loving others in ways that were not defined by self-protection?
• Have you ever thought of repentance and forgiving others as a way to enjoy God?
• Take a moment to hear the Spirit’s invitation to surrender selfish patterns of relating and to enter a deeper awareness of his heart for you and those whose lives you touch.
