A Deep Desire To Be An Instrument Of God

August 12, 2015

“In its most mature form, obedience is a matter of relating well, of giving to others what is best for them without any thought of the price it requires of us. When we spend time together with spiritual friends indwelt by the same power, we experience a deep desire to be an instrument of God, to inflame the passion to obey in others.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Becoming a True Spiritual Community, Page 139-140

Questions for Reflection:
• When you think of obeying God, is loving others unselfishly what tends to come to mind?
• As you ponder the reality that obedience can involve being God’s instrument to stir up a love for God in others, in what ways is the Holy Spirit at work in your own heart?
