A Better Hope Rather Than A Better Life

May 4, 2016

“The former arrangement of doing good to secure God’s blessings has been replaced by a new arrangement. The Law of Liberty has been established as the way to a better hope rather than a better life. That better hope is intimacy with God. In any circumstance, in any condition, we can draw near to God, and from Him draw our identity, find the strength to persevere, and experience the joy of anticipation, with an occasional taste of what’s coming.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, The Pressure’s Off, Page 27

Questions for Reflection:
• As you consider your current set of circumstances and honestly ponder your heart regarding them, what is the promise of intimacy with God, at this moment, offering you?
• What changes take place within you as you ponder the invitation to draw near to God in this present moment?
• Is there anything you realize that you can let go of attempting to manage or figure out since God really is with you?
