I like this idea--of our life and our relationship with Christ being like a quest. It makes me think of Tolkein's Trilogy--how the hobbits learned so many things as they went on their quest.
Schweitzer: "He speaks to us the same words--follow thou me.....He commands, and to those who obey him he reveals himself in the toils, the conflicts, and the sufferings which they shall pass through in his fellowship; and , as an ineffable mystery, they shall learn in their own experience who he is."
Bonhoeffer asks a question--"Who is Jesus for us?"
O'Driscoll goes on to comment: "The question Who is Jesus Christ for us? cannot be answered merely by information. It is therefore, more than a question, more of a quest. When we find the answer to a question we get on with other things. But to have a quest is to possess the very thing that allows our lives to go on, that calls us to follow after it. Jesus Christ is not a question to be answered; rather he is a quest to be lived............."
