Reflect for a moment on the difference between people interacting with ideas about a famous person (e.g. politician, Hollywood movie star, philanthropist, activist, scientist) versus interacting with that person live. Sense the difference.
- In what ways have you merely interacted with ideas about Jesus (from friends, mass media, cognitive reading of the Scriptures)? How do you feel that would be different from interacting with Jesus live?
- How badly do you want the latter?
- Which paradoxical traits of Jesus have the most supernatural magnetism towards you now?
