Our Passion for Self-Protection

January 24, 2018

“The passion to protect ourselves, to keep our wounds out of sight where no one can make them worse, is the strongest passion in our hearts. And it will remain so until we experience a certain kind of relationship, until we meet the crucified and resurrected Christ, and experience a person like Christ, someone broken yet beautiful….”

Dr. Larry Crabb, The Safest Place on Earth, “It Takes an Armando” Page 35

Questions for Reflection:
• In what ways has brokenness freed you from self-protection?
• What opportunity do you have today to offer a taste of this freedom and hope to someone who is still determined to hide or avoid pain?
• Take some time today to consider not only the gift that the crucified and resurrected Christ offers you but also what following Him allows you to offer others.
