I have been slowly reading through a book called finding God. While I haven’t agreed with all of the authors ideas and theology, there have been some awesome truths that have leaped off the pages…
We Christians cannot talk about loving God until we come to grips with our raging passion for ourselves. We can not and will not love anyone but ourselves until we meet God in a way that stirs us to race after him with single minded intensity, until our deepest desire is to get to know him better – Larry Crabb
How often do we slow down long enough so that we can clearly see this “raging passion” for self? Is this idea and the pursuit of understanding us, our personality types and what makes us happy getting in the way of knowing our creator more deeply?
My addiction to self gets in the way of me being more like Christ for sure. Will you join me in asking God to deliver us daily from ourselves, and instead give us a passion to know Jesus.
Thanks for reading. If you have found anything helpful from my words please leave a comment, or share this with someone who you know will benefit.
