    Authentic intimacy means saying the unpopular truths when necessary, even if youbelieve it will hurt. She might not like hearing your wants and feelings, but she'll respect your honesty. She'll also feel respected by you because you trusted her to hear and deal with something difficult.

    You couldn't keep your hands off each other. It didn't matter if you were in the car, in the movie theater, or in her parents' living room. Let's be honest-even in church. You were thinking about being with her, and she was thinking about being with you.

    That is the life that screams out to the world around it, "Jesus is enough. And He's better than all of these circumstantial and fleeting blessings." And that kind of person propels and magnifies the glory of God . . . even through their pain. They prove to a doubting world that Jesus is good enough to hang onto. Jesus understands better than we do that many times the most effective way for the glory of God to be advanced is through the suffering of His people.

    In that moment it would have been much easier not to believe than to believe. See, if you choose to believe in the God of the Bible, the God of David and Abraham and Jesus and Paul, you have to believe everything about Him. You can't just pick and choose parts of Christian theology to take in and others to reject. To take God's love is also to take His justice; to take His compassion is also to accept His wrath. It's not like a cafeteria line where you can just take mac and cheese and key lime pie because that's what your appetite tells you to take. You also have to take the asparagus.
