Falling Short of God’s Relational Glory

March 27, 2014

“With our masks, fig leaves, personas, and secrets all well positioned, we live not to reveal the God of love by the way we relate, but to hide from the fear that threatens to destroy us–our core terror. We fall short of God’s relational glory. We are never fully alive in relational femininity or masculinity. We live alone, in silent misery, meeting no one on the bridge.”

Question for Reflection:

Dr. Crabb believes that when fear is our ruling passion, self-protective, self-centered relating seems both necessary and justified. How do you see fear functioning in the way you relate?
