In a Far Country

Image“I’m going fishing,” said Simon Peter.  For centuries that has been our normal, knee-jerk response to broken fellowship with God.  To seek the once familiar things, things rooted in our past—in a sense to head back to “Egypt.”  But the result of that decision always leads to barrenness.  “Children, you do not have any fish, do you?”  was how Jesus brought home that truth, and their answer, as ours might be too, was “No.”  (John 21) Living in a “far country” away from the Master and His will, steals us of joy, peace, direction and fruit.  That’s why I like this season—it’s a time for retrospection, a time to realign priorities, a time for confession, forgiveness and restoration.  And the way back home starts with being able to answer Jesus’ question to Peter: “Do you love Me more than these?”  So, these are questions confronting me: “Have I gone fishing in any area of my life?” “Am I experiencing barrenness?” and “What might be a ‘these’ that I love more than my Jesus?”  This is a good time, I think, to be frank and honest with the spiritual condition of our lives, and then to be bold enough to make course corrections, if needed, and answer like Peter, “Lord, You know all things, You know that I love You.”  That’s my prayer—for me, for us.
