Walking Today with God

It morning the first thing I look forward to is getting outside and walking with God. Before I injured my back it was running with God today.

There are no words that fully explain the sense of oneness I experience with God when I do so. It’s a personal me and God time. Sometimes I sing to the Lord, but many times the Spirit of the risen Savior and Lord Jesus drops a word from the Holy Scriptures and drops it into my heart. As I walk I mediate on it. The bible says that in the word there is light. The light that opens up the word and reveal more of the life of Christ.

Today as I was walking it dawn on me how I have been so indifferent in sharing the gospel of Christ – which is salvation for mankind. The more I ponder on it, I realize that I was reacting to the negative treatment I had received at church over the past few years. I expected more out of Christians but gotten less. Often times I felt abandon, rejected, marginalize by the church. So I grew so bitter and cold toward the church. I had stopped going, and no one notice that I was missing.

I found out that I was not alone in this journey. I have met many who felt the same way. So when COV-19 came and shut down the churches I could not be happier. Because I found and knew that God was with me whether I was in Church or not. God is not bounded by a brick and mortar building at a set time during one day of the week.

God fully understood what I have been dealt however did not want me to remain in that state. As I walked along God began to show me that worst sin I could commit would be not willing to share the gospel of salvation with lost souls. It was like a light bulb went on. I said to the Lord this is indeed a grievous sin! More so than drunkenness, sexual immorality, murder, stealing, etc. I had allow my experience with Church, shut me down and the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am so grateful for this encounter today, for now I am back on the path, mission and purpose that God saved me for. To share the good news of the gospel with others.

I reflected on the christian woman more thn 40 years ago who took the time to share the gospel with me. With out her obedience I would not be saved today. So let us set aside the sin that so easily entangles us and there fore we are unproductive for the purposes of God.
