At our conference Dallas Willard stretched our thinking with this quote:
"God's intent for each of us is that we should become the kind of person
He can empower to do what we want."
Now that sounds self-gratifying, at first glance, but God wants to trust
us enough that want we 'want' is actually what he wants. In order to get
to get to this place we need to begin with scriptures like Matthew 6:33 -
"Seek first the kingdom of God and its righteous."
When we get to this place, then what we want would be only what God desires.
Now that challenges me! You?
Living in Grace,
