Approaching Jesus through analysis leads to theology. Approaching Him through pondering leads to adoration.
Mary treasured and pondered in her heart, the amazing words and prophesies about Him. As His mother, her heart loved and adored Him. Be like Mary! Christianity without pondering, mystery, awe, worship, miracles, surrender, obedience, and discipleship, is incomplete.
Church too often rationalizes and overexplains theology and leaves little mystery for people to ponder. It gets people to try to understand Jesus, but the early Christians allowed their heart to be overcome by Him. People need to be encouraged to ponder the glorious presence of the living Jesus.
Reading the Bible as a love letter instead of as a textbook, takes people beyond mental analysis and inspires them. That kind of approach to Jesus stirs the depths of their heart.
