A couple days ago I likened the Christian life to walking. We have to keep walking if we want to get where we are going.
There are reasons we might be tempted to turn back:
- the road ahead is rocky and steep
- we turned an ankle
- we got a summons to return home
- the trip no longer seems worth the effort
Well, these things happen. That us why we need one another to keep pushing us on. Today I might be weak and need your encouragement. Tomorrow you might be the weak one.
We must keep walking and we must not turn back. Our loyalty and commitment to God in Christ demands it. Our present troubles are insignificant. Keep moving.
