Owning Your Life (John 17:6-19)

@reseudaimon sitting, stately, regal

But there are some things we can’t keep quiet about, because to keep quiet about them would amount to deceit. Silence can be just as much a form of deception as a baldfaced lie.

The irony for me is that in the long run the vulnerability that comes with telling the truth feels much safer than the fortress we attempt to construct by our silence. Being sanctified in truth means being able to look at ourselves in the mirror. But even more importantly, it means being able to stand in the presence of the God who created and loves this world and who wants to save it with us in it—not just to save us by taking us out of it.
