The Narrow Road That Will Free Us

July 8, 2015

“Self-obsessed men and women foolishly demand from others what only God can give, what God longs to give.  We then realize, as God’s Spirit works in us, that our way of relating leaves us empty and is unspeakably ugly.  If we then confess ourselves to be hopeless and helpless in the presence of a holy and merciful God, we begin our walk on the narrow road that will free us to live as feminine women and masculine men.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Fully Alive, Page 181

Questions for Reflection:
• Consider areas of relational conflict or distance that you are currently experiencing.
• Are there ways you’ve been demanding from others what only God can give?
• How have you resisted receiving from God what He Himself longs to provide for you?
• Ask the Holy Spirit to open your eyes to the ways your demands have impacted the hearts of the those around you.
• What do you most want to offer God and those around you?
