Sexless Intimacy

The sex-saturated culture that we live in has adulterated the original meaning of the word intimacy.  I can recall getting some funny looks one evening when I told some young men in a bible study that we need to become intimate with God.  They told me that I was being nasty by comparing our relationship with God to a sexual term.  I was initially upset at their polluted view of the word intimacy but over time I’ve realized that many people have an inaccurate view of what intimacy really is.

One way to correctly define intimacy is as follows: finding oneself while losing oneself in another person; requires a commitment to another person.

“Anyone who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me.  Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.”  Jesus, Matthew 10:38-39
