We all enter relationships with dreams of what they can be. In this audio talk, Paul Tripp argues your world of relational dreams 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. Tripp suggests that the problem in our relationships is one of competing loves: our selfish love is in the way of Christ’s love that he calls us to show our neighbors. He concludes that Christ went to the cross to free us from the kingdom of self.
