I Want You To Become More Like God

February 3, 2016

“There is a difference between seeing someone as your project and having a vision for how the Spirit is shaping their new identity. In the first, the energy is self-oriented: I want you to become this for me. In the second, the passion is love for God and the other: I want you to become more like God so He will be clearly revealed to people who know you, and so you will be happy.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Becoming a True Spiritual Community, Page 138

Questions for Reflection:
• Is there anyone to whom you need to apologize because you’ve been demanding change from them for selfish reasons?
• What shifts take place in your heart when you focus on looking for the Spirit’s work in another, instead of being driven by a need to change them?
