On the Journey Together

 


What do you do when you are frantic because of a problem which seems to be totally overwhelming? Most of us call someone. We reach out to another person, not because we necessarily think they can solve the problem, but rather we just need someone to hear what we are going through. That alone seems to help. The same is true when we are in a strange place and have lost our way. Even though the person with us is as clueless as we are on how to find the way, still, just having someone there makes it all less scary. 

It's a pretty obvious truth – we human beings need each other. Maybe we need to say that more often today as we are living in a culture which gives the impression that technology has taken the place of human contact; that we can have the best of both worlds, companionship without the messiness of people. Fortunately, we are realizing, it just doesn’t work, especially when life starts to break down. 

The apostle Peter wrote a letter to a group of Christians some 2000 years ago telling his readers pretty much the same thing: “You need each other!” Times were tough. Persecution for following Christ was increasing. The only way those early believers would make it through was to stick together. It’s no different today. A believer doesn’t have to experience persecution for their faith to go through times of questioning, confusion, or suffering. The journey through life can seem agonizingly slow and difficult. We need to be on the journey together. 

If you’ve always wondered about the practical importance of committing yourself to a group of other Christians, join us for one of our weekend services. Your journey just might change for the better – to your surprise.

Lighthouse

 


For the sailor fighting for his life during a deadly storm at sea, there is no more welcome sight than the glimmering rays of a lighthouse off in the distance. Though the light seems to be only a flicker compared to the immensity of the darkness, it is enough to guide the sailor to safety. 

There are times in life that we feel we are engulfed in a storm of problems and challenges which threaten our very existence. We can’t make sense of anything and as a result become paralyzed by all the uncertainty and doubt created by our ever-changing situation. But for the Christian, there is the Lighthouse – Jesus Christ. No, he does not usually swoop in and resolve our suffering with a wave of a hand. Instead, he gives us the understanding and the guidance we need to day by day, step by step journey through the storms of life. 

The apostle Peter wrote to some believers about 2000 years ago who were going through times of painful persecution. With the strong, soothing words of a grandfather he points these suffering people to the only One who can keep them on the path to their final destination. Peter does not promise easy solutions. But he does assure his readers of the ultimate victory which is awaiting them. 

Whether or not you are in the middle of a life storm at the moment, the day will come when you will feel like the frantic sailor lost at sea. You will ask the questions, “Why is this happening to me? What should I do? How is this all going to turn out?” It will be at that moment you will need Jesus to be your lighthouse to safety. Join us for one of our weekend services. Now is the time to get ready for the storm.
