I have been thinking about a proverb I have heard from my friends from Asia. When I say it, my Chinese friends say it is from China, my Korean friends say it is from Korea, my Japnaese friends say it is from Japan. The proverb or saying goes like this:
“A journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”
The spiritual journey is an eternal journey because it is a relationship with God who is eternal. We can spend all eternity in relationship with God and still not know Him completely. We can know what He shows us, but we who are finite cannot fully understand God who is eternal. That is why God in His love has given us a guide for the journey that will stay with us forever. Jesus is the guide. If we will receive Him, He will guide us and stay with us forever. He said that himself when He said, “I am with you always even to the end of the age.”
How comforting it is to have a guide when we travel to a new place we do not know. I always appreciate the translators I have when I travel. They help me to know where to go, to undertsand the culture etc. Jesus wants to be our guide in our eternal journey with God. He will help us to know where to go and the culture etc. The question is will we let Him guide us?
