Relationally ALIVE!

August 17, 2016

“Important values such as obedience and endurance must be more than chosen duties or manipulative strategies. They must be energized by the life of God within us, the life of love. They must spring from the relationally alive center planted deep in our regenerate hearts that nourishes a desire to reveal the relational nature of Christ to others by how we relate.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, A Different Kind of Happiness, Page 68

Questions for Reflection:
• Do you tend to view obedience and endurance as pressure to perform well, as determined effort that produces positive results, or as the outflowing of your deepest desire?
• What, if anything, is currently blocking your awareness of the motivating desire to love as Christ does?
• Take some time today to allow the Holy Spirit to renew your awareness of His life at work in you.
