I've preached twice in the last three weeks. This is not normal for me. In fact, it's downright terrifying. But it's also a little exciting. When I get deep into the Bible (which I do--with desperation--when I preach, because except for an excellent class on the Gospel of John I took when I was a freshman in college, I have no formal theology training) I always come out of the experience enriched.
Those of you who aren't Christians, trust me on this one (and all of you Christians who don't read your Bibles, you too). Spend a little time in there meeting all of the flawed people who aren't much different than you or me.
And if you're lucky, you'll be surprised by the character of Jesus. He surprises me at every turn, and it's His example, His character, His sacrifice, and His deep love that bring me back to my faith, even when I'm ready to walk away. I don't think that's a bad thing. I think it's right that I'm a Christian because of Christ, and Him alone.
