The Happy Ending Is Only For The Holy

March 11, 2015

“My plan has a happy ending, a wonderful finale far better than you can imagine, but the happy ending is only for the holy. I am committed to your holiness at any cost to Me, required by My nature, and at any cost to you, required by yours, and on whatever timetable is necessary.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, 66 Love Letters, Page 34

Questions for Reflection:
• In what areas of your life are you experiencing conflict that reveals your commitment to self-interest above loving as self-sacrificially as Jesus does?
• Do you sense the Spirit of God exposing self-protection that you have justified to yourself and which is a quiet refusal to surrender to dependence on Him?
• In what ways has your current challenge stirred anger or despair, revealing the idols of your heart?
• Do you believe that God truly is always at work for your greatest joy?
What would repentance that embraces His joy look like today?
