I Trust God’s Work In You

March 24, 2016

“Admonishment to do right becomes ugly pressure when it is not preceded and liberally accompanied by an attitude that says, ‘I cannot make you do anything.  But I believe there is something in you that wants to do right.  I believe in that life within you.  I trust God’s work in you.  And more than anything else, I want you to enjoy a taste of God’s gracious, loving heart in your relationship with me.'”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Connecting, Page 33

Questions for Reflection:
• Think of a time when you’ve attempted to control another in the name of right.
• What was really motivating the pressure you were exerting?
• How might an unselfish love have instead invited needed change with strength, passion and without compromise?
• Take some time to allow the Holy Spirit to speak to your heart and to lead you into repentance and reconciliation as needed, celebrating His grace.
