Willing To Persevere Through Anything
“My Son is the perfect Person I had in mind for all people to be. He is the perfect Person whose image you will become. The more clearly you see perfect maturity in Him, the more you’ll be drawn to that goal, the less divided you’ll be, and the more willing you’ll become to persevere through anything in order to be formed like My Son.”
Dr. Larry Crabb, 66 Love Letters, Page 219
Questions for Reflection:
• When you think of Jesus as the perfect Person, does that stir in you hope or pressure today?
• Take some time to read the Gospels today, noting how Jesus’ perfect, obedient life was lived out of trusting intimacy with His Father, not self-motivated effort.
• Ask the Holy Spirit to renew your hope today and rejoice that the work Jesus did in opening the way for us to become children of God makes it possible for us to grow in intimate trust in our heavenly Father.
