Something Better

May 11, 2016

“You will never, until heaven, mature beyond having to fight the battle against flesh-driven relational wickedness. But something else, something better, is in you, and it’s lodged in a deeper place in your heart than where your natural self-centeredness lives.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, 66 Love Letters, Page 335

Questions for Reflection:
• Do you find it more difficult to come to terms with the fact that sin will remain a battle until heaven or with the truth that something better lives more deeply within you than your own self-centeredness?
• Do you typically think of self-centeredness as “relational wickedness”?
• Ask the Holy Spirit to lead you into a deeper appreciation of the truths that we’ll never outgrow on earth our battle with sin but that the new life of Christ available within us is even greater than our selfishness.
