I Don’t Have To Be A Know-It-All

I’m still reading through Craig Groeschel’s newest book The Christian Atheist (my review is coming soon). This morning I read a statement that Craig quotes from Andy Stanley

“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!
