Shackleton’s third man

  |  0 Comments

The experience of Shacklteon in the Antartic when on a perilous journey over ice mountains he and his colleagues were aware of a strange accompanying presence:

Who is the third who always walks beside you? When I count there are only you and I together. But when I look ahead up the white road there is always another walking beside you.

There is always another walking beside you – the Lord inviting you to walk with me. Jesus walked along the Galilee shoreline and called people to him. Jesus walked to the disciples on the stormy sea and dispelled their lurking fears. Jesus walked to the mourners on the Emmaus Road and turned and set their hearts on fire.

Jesus walks alongside you and says, “Walk with me.”

Prayer just asking?

“I’ve been thinking about something lately,” he said. “So much of the Christian prayer life consists of asking God for things. So what are we going to pray about when there’s no more pain and sin and suffering?” That messed me up. I think most Christians, myself in particular, see God mostly as a needs-and-wants fulfillment service. In the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve literally had no needs. When we get to heaven, we’ll have everything we need. We were created to walk and talk with God, not just ask Him to fix everything that’s wrong with the world. Prayer wasn’t created as a way to tell God our problems—He already knows them anyway. Humans were created simply to be with their Father.

Turn up

  |  0 Comments

Just by turning up and being there, you bring the presence of God.

When thoughts pop into my head like “What’s the point of you going?”, “What on earth can you do?” or “They don’t want to see you now”, I turn to the great truths that God is with me, that I am a temple of the Holy Spirit, that I have one with me who can bind up the broken hearted and that God loves to minister to us through each other.
