The moment we decide to accept Christ in your life the quest to walk in God’s peace becomes a lifelong endeavor.
God commands us to love one another. The first letter of John in fact tells us that everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. Whoever does not love – does not know God because God is love. I find however, that the walk with God often seems so abstract – and – set apart from the physical reality of life that we live on a day-to-day basis. What runner runs a race without first knowing the specific goal or having a particular purpose? I use the term runner not only to refer to a physical track race but also to represent every facet of life; education, career, or project of any kind, that has a starting point and an ending point. (But) As you can see, to use the terms start and end already contradicts abstract. So the moment we begin and accept Christ into our life and make the decision to walk in God’s love, we soon realize that while our physical beginnings will end and begin again, we are all always striving towards a goal that has no end. This leads me to ask the question, that although this journey involves interacting with the physical, why do we forget that the goal (eternal life) is never ending?
