Five: With Him not For Him

If you constantly find yourself doing things for God, then learn to stop. God does not need you to get his attention or affection, but to simply learn to walk with him.

  1. I think Wayne’s comments about “living with” versus “living for” are exactly the words I have been searching to explain my relationship with God. However, I am not sure what to think about these verses that clearly use “live for”.

     

    2 Cor 5:15
    1 Cor 8:6
    Gal 2:19
     
    Please explain…

  3. This was the breakthrough video for me.  I HAVE been doing things for God (or for myself, and giving God “credit”).  I felt called this summer to stop everything church-related, to gain perspective, to rest & reflect, to have more time to listen to God.

    This video clarifies for me what this summer is about – giving up on trying to earn my way into God’s good graces, and learning to know his love for me.

    Gjheis, those verses all talk about living for God (and not for ourselves).  I think what Wayne was talking about was doing things for God, to try to earn his favor.
