1 KINGS 19:4-8
JOHN 6:35, 41-51
I met an old friend for coffee last week, and he said something that saddened me. Mind you, this guy’s a veteran seminary professor, and the Executive Vice President of one of the largest Evangelical ministries in the US, if not the world.
“I’m just so tired,” he said, “of having to understand and explain everything. There’s no mystery left in my faith.”
This is true of much of the modern church, but it hasn’t always been so. The command of Jesus, after all, was “take and eat,” not “take and understand.”
