“No one has it all figured out all the time — both Christians and non-Christians are in need of ongoing conversion.
Jesus didn’t tell us to make believers. He called us to make disciples, and disciples are followers and students of the way of God. Followers learn to change their beliefs as they walk.
Conversion can feel like a light switch has been flipped from off to on, and everything is suddenly illuminated. Conversion can also feel like a gradual brightening of a long darkness — or like a long fade from clarity into doubt. Jesus, it would seem, joins us in both the darkness and the light. In both sudden epiphany and unhurried evolution.”
