The Power Of Hell Cannot Destroy Them

December 8, 2016

“I sent My Son to destroy the devil’s work [1 John 3:8-9]. And He did. He has taken over. You ask what difference He has made. There is now a community of people who, though their souls may feel empty, are filled with My Spirit, a people whose lifestyle is giving from trusted fullness rather than grasping for demanded fullness. They are My people. I am their God. They are My Son’s church, His bride and body, and the power of hell cannot destroy them. They are the army I have raised up and equipped to represent Me and to advance My purposes in this world.”

Dr. Larry CRabb, 66 Love Letters, Page 208

Questions for Reflection:
• As we approach the celebration of Christ’s birth, consider the ways that Jesus’ coming did not match the expectations of those awaiting the promised Messiah.
• Are there ways that your expectations of how God “should” work may be keeping you from seeing Him revealed in the world and in His people and in your own life?
• Ask the Holy Spirit to lead you today—regardless of felt emptiness or fullness—into faithfully representing Christ and advancing His purposes in the world.
