When we choose to be intimate with God, we can be honest, transparent and intimate with people, too. The mask comes off we have nothing to hide. When we realize that God knows every single thing about us good and bad and still loves us, we dont have to try to be anything were not. Why isnt this intimacy more important to us than anything else in life? I think we do explore that in this study, but I think the most important first step is simply asking ourselves that question. Why do I want anything but that? What is so appealing about fitting in and sacrificing intimacy with God?
