A JOURNEY OF FAITH...


We are all called by the Lord on a spiritual journey of faith. Picture a pin-point, and a line that proceeds from that point off into the distance, on to infinity. That line is an apt symbol of a person's life. Our life on earth is the size of that pin-point, the rest of our life is eternity.



"All the dead were judged according to their deeds. Then Death and Hades were thrown into the pool of fire. Anyone whose name is not written in the book of life was thrown into the
pool of fire." The "Devil who had led them astray was thrown into the pool of fire and sulfur, where...they will be tormented day and night forever and ever." (Rev. 20:13b-15; 20:10). Jesus calls us not to death, but to Life! "I AM the Way, the Truth and the Life." (Jn. 14:6). Jesus says: "Repent!...I will give each of you what your works deserve...Whoever has ears ought to listen to what the Spirit says to the churches." (Rev. 2:5, 23, 29). To the 'victor', those whose names are in the 'book of life', God promises a place of endless joys and splendor beyond imagination, a place where, "He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and there shall be no more death
or mourning, wailing or pain, for the old order has passed away." (Rev. 21:4).



Noah was a very old man when God called him to build an ark, and prepare to move his family. When Abram was 75, "The Lord said to Abram: 'Go forth from the land of your kinfolks and from your father's house to a land I will show you.'" (Gen. 12:1). No doubt Noah and Abram were set in their ways, as both were said to be past our modern 'retirement' age when they heard The Lord's call. They could have used plenty of different excuses, the same types of excuses we use today, since:
"Nothing is new under the sun." (Eccl.1:9). But they were "...Open!" (Mk. 7:34) to the Lord, chose to listen to "the Lord, thy God, to walk in His Ways" (Dt. 5:33; 8:6 etc.). In return, God abundantly blessed them! Abram also received a new name, 'Abraham'. It's interesting that in Revelation, those whose names are found in the book of life will also receive "a new name." (Rev. 2:17).



Our life in this world, your life, is just a brief pilgrimage; a journey towards a new and eternal life. Your choices are important! If you've finished this section of the "The ABC's of Faith", your journey's begun. "There is an appointed time for everything, a time for every purpose under heaven." (Eccl. 3:1). Now is the 'appointed time' to heed the voice of the Lord, and to respond to His call. If you nourish yourself on His spiritual gifts, listen to His Voice and answer His call, you can enjoy more inner peace on earth, and receive the eternal joys of heaven!

May your spiritual journey be a fruitful one, and may you learn to "walk in His Ways" (Dt. 5:33). Amen! (So be it!)
