The Compulsion of More

Filed under: Uncategorized — dannywahlquist @ 11:21 am

“Why are so few of us, even as Christians, genuinely content? Though Christ calls us to contentment in Him, the compulsion of more constantly threatens to pull us away from God. Many of us fall into empty searches for significance that more cannot supply.”

“Liberation from this compulsion comes when we understand the source of these desires for more.”

Hypocrites

Filed under: Uncategorized — dannywahlquist @ 11:12 am

“We often think of hypocrites as those who say they believe one thing and do another. However, Scripture most often sees them as people who perform external religious acts (supposed redemptive responses) with no change (restructuring) of their hearts. Hypocrites exercise their religion to advance their personal significance. A Pharisee pursued perfection for the pleasure of moving up one more notch on the religious ladder. “

Our Passions, Pride, and Desire For Pleasure

Filed under: Uncategorized — dannywahlquist @ 11:06 am

“Our passions, pride, and desire for pleasure are powerful motivators, bubbling to the surface in our attitudes and actions. Like the search for significance, these forces are God-given and good in themselves. But unless they are submitted to God’s control, they will flow into destructive channels that not only rob us of their God-intended enjoyment, but cause us to damage ourselves and others. Just as there is no significance outside of Christ, there is no true fulfillment of these inner drives apart from Him.”

Our Need For Significance

Filed under: Uncategorized — dannywahlquist @ 11:02 am

“It is safe to say that there is not an area of life that is unaffected by this primal need for significance. But apart from Christ, the passages through which we normally move to establish and maintain our significance, even when successfully negotiated, most often leave us with a sense of sorrow, loss and regret.

“Our need for significance is not the culprit. We were built for significance. The culprit is our struggling, stumbling attempts to manufacture our own sense of significance and in the process place at risk that very thing for which we strive, the very people we need and love, the society in which we move, and the cause of Christ for which we have been redeemed.”
