Do You Believe You Bring Him Pleasure?

January 13, 2016

“The most powerful thing we can do to help someone change is to offer them a rich taste of God’s incredible goodness in the New Covenant. He looks at us with eyes of delight, with eyes that see a goodness beneath the mess, with a heart that beats wildly with excitement over who we are and who we will become. And sometimes he exposes what we are convinced would make him turn away in disgust in order to amaze us with his grace.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Connecting, Page 10

Questions for Reflection:
• When you think of your relationship with God, do you experience Him as someone who sees you with delight?
• Is that sense of His pleasure or lack of believing you bring Him pleasure tied to your behavior or to your relationship with Him?
• If your relationship with Him is based on His love for you through Jesus rather than your performance, what difficult truths about your heart is He inviting you to bring honestly to Him today so that you can experience His grace?
