The More Clearly You See Christ

December 27, 2017

“Because of My Son, no failure of yours can block My plan for your life. But you must see My Son so clearly, so up close and personally, that you realize that He is worthy of your losing everything you value in order to know Him, to serve Him. The more clearly you see Christ, the more willing you will be to suffer any loss for His sake. Kingdom living consists of radical servanthood (the end of entitlement to personal comfort) and self-denying suffering with the hope of joy forever.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, 66 Love Letters, “Love Letter Forty-One: Mark,” Page 214-15

Questions for Reflection:
• As 2017 draws to a close, what failures are you tempted to believe have undermined God’s plan for your life?
• Take some time to confess this to God, and ask the Holy Spirit to give you a vision for what He desires to do in and through you as you begin 2018.
• How would your life change during this coming year if your primary focus is to draw near to God in everything and to view all of life as a means to know Him more deeply and to reveal Him to others more selflessly?
