The sheer joy of finding saints along the way!

Posted by appolus on September 12, 2017

After 27 years in the States I believe I have encountered most sects of Christendom It has been was very depressing to meet people so sold out to a doctrine, so lacking in love for Jesus Himself and so obsessed with portions of Scripture that are so often taken out of context as to make no sense on any level and on these differences they build divisions. Our grand obsession should be Jesus.

No matter where you go, if you find people whose grand obsession is Jesus you wont go far wrong. I want to meet people who love Jesus with all their hearts and souls and minds and body. I want to meet my brothers and sisters from every background, from ever tribe and from every tongue and from every nation. I want to walk along the pilgrim way a while with my fellow sojourners. It refreshes me and revives me and lifts me up.

We shall be known, it is written, by our love for one another. Give me a man or a women who has no agenda to push, no ministry to laud, no kingdom of his or her own to build, but simply loves Jesus with such a burning passion that all they want to do is talk about Him and what He has done for them, how He has changed them and transformed them, how he has filled them and fulfilled them. How He has completed them. How they would certainly die without Him, how they would have lost their minds without Him. How He lifted them from the gutters and made them to fly in heavenly places.

That is the folks I want to meet. New creatures in Christ. Next door down here at the lake the folks have an 18 month old baby and this morning he was in the canoe with them. He was looking around in wonder at the sky and the water and the trees and the hawks flying overhead. With wonder and awe he was taking it all in. It reminded me of my own new birth. The wonder of it all. To look at the world through virginal eyes, to see everything through the light of God. Behold, all things were new in the light of Him in the glory and the simplicity of loving Him. Lord, I want to ever walk in the glory and the simplicity of knowing you and wanting more of you and loving you and loving your creation and loving everything that you love.

    I totally agree! We talk about that which is nearest and dearest to our heart. Those whose true love is our Lord enjoy discussing and sharing about Him. It’s the most wonderful encouragement one can get and gives us added determination to follow Him. What one spends their time talking about is a good indicator of where their heart lies. I love hearing how God is working in people’s lives!!
