The Spiritual Journey Is Rooted In Liberty

April 27, 2016

“The secular journey is rooted in linearity, the bondage of control: do this and that will happen. That’s how things work. You can have the life you want if you live wisely and well.

The spiritual journey is rooted in liberty, the freedom of grace: Come as you are, trembling, and learn to rest. Then go out into life doing what’s right because you’re privileged to do so, because you want to be holy, not because doing right is the way to a pleasant life. Life may provide rich blessings. Or it may not. Either way you can know God.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, The Pressure’s Off, Page 26

Questions for Reflection:
• Does the realization that you can know God, regardless of whether things are going well in your life or are currently very challenging, bring you hope, or do you find yourself seeking a way to use God to improve your circumstances?
• Are you embracing the peace of God that is available to those who rest in Him or are you waiting for your circumstances to change in order to live with contentment?
• Take some time today to come as you are before the Lord, and ask Him to stir in your heart a hope that is rooted in His character above all else.
