I've long been concerned that the Church has cultivated a religion about Jesus rather than encouraging us to adopt the religion of Jesus. No one, really, expresses this better than Henri Nouwen:
I know that I have to move from speaking about Jesus to letting him speak within me, from thinking about Jesus to letting him think within me, from acting for and with Jesus to letting him act through me. I know the only way for me to see the world is to see it through his eyes.
When you think about it, Nouwen is actually communicating a high theology of the Indwelling. Perhaps this Lent we can ponder that teaching more seriously.
