Destination or Journey? How Do You See Your Christian Walk?

I read a great article this week on a blog I frequent, Jesus Creed. This article posed the same question, Journey or Destination? Essentially, I want to pass this conversation on to you.

 

As I see it, the Christian life is a journey. We understand that the personhood of Jesus enables us to have a relationship with God. If we see our spirituality as a relationship then we will more easily embrace the journey, because Jesus is with us. 

 

I have the pleasure of gathering with Valley Life Center.  I sense that we at VLC are on the same page with this, since our gatherings have a feeling of process to them. This is a journey I am glad to be on, not only with them, but also with you.

 

I would also like to leave you with this passage from Philippians.

 

The righteousness that I have comes from knowing Christ, the power of his resurrection, and the participation in his sufferings. It includes being conformed to his death so that I may perhaps reach the goal of the resurrection of the dead.

     It’s not that I have already reached this goal or have already been perfected, but I pursue it, so that I may grab hold of it because Christ grabbed hold of me for just this purpose. Brothers and sisters, I myself don’t think I’ve reached it, but I do this one thing: I forget about the things behind me and reach out for the things ahead of me. The goal I pursue is the prize of God’s upward call in Christ Jesus. 

Philippians 3:10-14

 

Grace and peace,

Brook
