The Goofy thing about the Christian faith

The goofy thing about the Christian faith is that you believe it and don’t believe it at the same time.  It isn’t unlike having an imaginary friend.  I believe in Jesus; I believe He is the Son of God, but every time I sit down to explain this to somebody I feel like a palm reader, like somebody who works at a circus or a kid who is always making things up or somebody at a Star Trek convention who hasn’t figured out the show isn’t real.

Until.

When one of my friends becomes a Christian, which happens about every ten years because I am such a sheep about sharing my faith, the experience is euphoric.  I see in their eyes the trueness of the story.

From Donald Miller‘s Blue Like Jazz: Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality. page 51.
