The Walk

by ggerhauser

NY Morning Thought: Yesterday, Gideon and I walked with my dad’s walking group. As we were walking, a lady explained to me how she was introduced to the group. At that time, she wasn’t much of a walker, but she was amazed that these people would walk no matter what the weather. Even if it was freezing, and there was snow on the ground, they would walk. At first, she was intimidated, but soon their devotion inspired her to walk as well. Interestingly, one of the primary metaphors in the Bible for faith is ‘walking’. You are called to walk with God no matter what the weather. Consistency is critical. On this walk you experience flat ground, inclines and declines. You see the forest and the open field. You come upon streams and lakes. It’s in the walk that Jesus’ vastness is revealed to you. And as you walk, following Jesus, you will inspire others to walk as well. “They said to one another, ‘Were not our hearts burning within us while He was speaking to us on the road, while He was explaining the Scriptures to us?’” (Luke‬ ‭24:32‬, ‭NASB‬‬).
