Where do we Find Life?

by Donald Miller

"If I place myself in a scene with Christ, I am most comfortable on the outskirts, an anonymous follower hidden in the crowd. I’d stare at Him for sure, until He stared back, after which I’d quickly make conversation with somebody else hoping He wouldn’t come over. I’d probably do this for a few weeks until I knew I could trust Him. And this only because I have religious baggage. If I hadn’t grown up in religion, I’d probably talk to Him right away and tell Him he’s a fool and then realize pretty quickly He’s not and then we’d get a beer."

"What strikes me about my perspective regarding the Bible before is how little of it had to do with Jesus. It was mostly about doctrine, and arguing doctrine or proving and disproving doctrine. Jesus says to the Jews 'You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me, yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life.'"
