We are all dreamers, especially in our relationships. We all enter relationships with dreams of what they can be. Your world of relational dream is a war zone – a war in your heart between the kingdom of self and the Kingdom of God. Sin in its essence is not the breaking of rules, but rather a breaking of relationships. We will only demonstrate the fruit of the Spirit when our hearts are gripped by a Kingdom that is larger than our own. What’s wrong in our relationships is that love is in the way of love – the love I have for self is in the way of Christ’s love that I am commanded to show my neighbor. Jesus intentionally and specifically went to the cross to rescue you from yourself. Christ will not stop battling on our behalf until we are freed of the kingdom of self.
Key Scripture: Galatians 5:13-24
