Follow the light that will lead you home

Posted by appolus on December 23, 2017

The man who has passed on into the divine Presence in actual inner experience will not find many who understand him. A certain amount of social fellowship will of course be his as he mingles with religious persons in regular activities of the church, but true spiritual fellowship will be hard to find. “The Saint Must Walk Alone” A.W. Tozer

Tozer is speaking of true spiritual fellowship. That seems to be something that is very rare. I guess the very nature of being a pilgrim denotes loneliness to a certain extent. When we think of pilgrims and pilgrimage we think of long journeys , the definition of pilgrimage is ” a religious expedition.” The word expedition means a voyage or journey, typically that of exploration. Let me ask you saints, does it seem to you that you are on voyage or a journey? Have you left the world behind and struck out into unknown lands and crossed uncharted seas? Or, have you stuck with what you know?

The Christian walk is a voyage of discovery. It crosses uncharted oceans and climbs un-climbed mountains. It leaves the world behind as it journeys towards the celestial city. We are citizens of a land unknown to men. The only map that we have is to be found deep within our hearts. In order to reach this city all must be forsaken. Have you left the world behind you? Are you a mere sojourner on this earth? Does this world seem foreign to you? The saints heart will never be at ease in Babylon. It will long to be in the New Jerusalem. We shall follow the light within us as the wise men followed the star. It will take us home.

    Thank you for this reminder. The Lord showed me years ago that I was a sojourner, and yet I still find myself at times wondering why I don’t feel like I fit in anywhere, not even the Church. Simple answer, but easily forgotten, because I’m not meant to fit in, and the fact that the Church is but a shadow of its former self. Thanks!

      Yes, I have felt that way on many levels. As an immigrant I really dont belong in America, but I also dont belong back home since I have been gone for 26 years. As a Pentecostal, I dont belong in those circles since they capitulated to the word of faith and prosperity movements. As someone who believe in signs and wonders, I dont belong to that group either since they seem obsessed with the miraculous but ignore the greatest miracle of all, salvation. As someone who believes in the sign gifts of the Holy Spirit I dont belong in most main line denominations, nor even churches that do because I dont believe in the one man system. And I am sure there are others that I failed to mention 🙂 ……..bro Frank

  3. This is so very true. Blessings to you my brother as we finish another year of calling people to more (or less!).

    This is exactly how my life in Christ has been … I just don’t seem to fit … each dominion has deviated just enough from the truth to be a snare to avoid. I discovered that if the belief system, that has been incorporated through tradition or misinterpretation, is humbly challenged …. even by scripture truths … most do not hear and if they hear they do not respond … there seems to be a comfort zone in numbers. I so desire fellowship but can not compromise truth. In this Jesus has brought people with the same desire for truth across my path.

    Today I studied Psalms 19 and Proverbs 21:16 … Like David my prayer is to be guarded from ‘presumptuous’ sins … these sins may start by a drifting or wandering away from the truths found only in His Word when we rely on others instead of seeking truth for ourselves. Deuteronomy 12:32 tells us to observe what the LORD has commanded .. not adding or taking away. Jesus reiterates the warnings in Revelation 22:18 adding the consequences of adding and taking away from His Word. Scary thoughts … I am thankful for discernment and wisdom …. I am thankful for His Holy Spirit.

    To whom much is given – much is required.
