“You don’t have to understand everything to believe in something.”
I don’t know about you, but this give me such freedom! Especially in my role as a pastor where sometimes I feel like I’m supposed to understand it all.
I don’t have to have an answer to every question to point people to God.
I don’t have to be able to unravel every theological mystery to tell people Jesus loves them.
I don’t have to know how He does it to lead people to the empowerment of the Holy Spirit.
I don’t have to know why everything happened the way it did to care for hurting or confused people.
The bottom line is I can only know the part – the infinitesimal part – that the Holy Spirit has made alive to me. But that part is more than enough for me to keep on loving my God and my Savior!
