Religion Or Christ?

My Romanian family emigrated to the U.S. from Transylvania. This weekend's conference also saw many families from this part of Romania and thus many of the folks I met could speak German. 

Every time I could, I brought up this famous exhortation of the great Norwegian scholar Ole Hallesby:

"Fange damit an, Gott zu bitten, er möge dir begegnen and dir ein persönliches Gotteserlebnis schenken. Bitte um den Heiligen Geist und lies täglich dein Neues Testament mit diesem Gebet! Dann wirst du ein Christ werden, d.h., du wirst Gott in Christus begegnen."

I could not agree more!
