…FOR GOD GAVE US A SPIRIT NOT OF FEAR BUT OF
POWER AND LOVE AND SELF-CONTROL. – 2 TIMOTHY 1:7
BIBLICAL INTIMACY: CLOSENESS IN PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP
(PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL, SPIRITUAL)
“I’ve been hurt” – your pain is real! (Job 19:19)
IMPACT OF BEING HURT (FEAR)
I BECOME DISTANT
How do we hide?
I BECOME DEFENSIVE
I don’t want to be vulnerable.
HOW DO I OVERCOME THE FEAR OF INTIMACY?
KNOW WHO I AM AND WHERE MY VALUE COMES FROM
Security, Acceptance, and Intimacy With Christ
(Mathew 22:37-39, Romans 15:7)
TAKE A PRAYERFUL, RELATIONAL RISK (1 PETER 1:22)
THE RISK IS WORTH IT! (1 CORINTHIANS 13:7)
KEY: YOU CAN NEVER HAVE INTIMACY WITHOUT RISK!
