They Have Poured Into Me the Hope That Death Precedes Life

January 2, 2013

“I have experienced death in the presence of my wife and a few friends. They have watched the process, they have fixed nothing and exhorted nothing, but they have poured into me the hope that death precedes life, that death to self is the route to finding oneself, that crucifixion means Resurrection is coming. Because we died together, because we connected during the experience of death, we now live together. We experience fellowship in Christ, the real thing that only he can provide.”

Dr. Larry Crabb, Connecting, Page 101

Questions for Reflection:
What do you think this kind of fellowship looks like?
Does the thought of experiencing this frighten you or excite you?
