Text: Genesis 12:1
📖1….”Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee:”
🔥When God called Abram to embark on a journey from Mesopotamia, he never gave him the address of where he was to go. He only told him to depart from his country, kindred and father’s house to where he would later show him. This was the beginning of the invisible journey called the Christ Faith. In Christianity, the caller, the place one is called to, the road map to the place, the Spirit leading one, the distance one has covered and yet to cover, are all invisibly unseen and unknown.
🔥🔥It is like travelling on the sea or by air. Such journeys are dangerous because there is no physical road map or route on the physical environment to travel by. So, the path to travel by, the Spirit leading one, the distance one has covered, even the Master who asked one to embark on such a journey, are all inside of the traveller – 1 John 4:4, 1 Cor 13:12. The only part of the journey visible to us, is the structural Church building. Even other journey makers with you, which are saved and are sure to get there, are also unknown and invisible hence we fight ourselves.
🔥🔥🔥Since the only visibly known part of the journey is the structural Church building, which is our location, we have to remain there in spirit and in truth. Since our take off place is the Church building, we have to endeavour to remain there too (Hebrews 10:25). This is because we don’t see the road (John 14:6) to where we are going; we only follow it in our inside. So, don’t go out from the Church Exodus 12:22. This is why the prodigal son in Luke 15:17-18, returned to his location. Beloveth, except you depart from the familiar scenes of your life like Abram did, and begin to live by the descriptions of the road map of the Christian journey in your heart, by obeying the unseen road signs of sanctification, mercy, faithfulness, commitment, devotion and dedication to the unseen God, you will never make it to that beautiful home.
🙏Dear Lord, even though the way, the place, the Spirit leading us are invisible, help us to follow your fragrance, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Precious father, retain us, your children, in your name which is a strong tower (Proverbs 18:10), the Church, for us to be saved, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Dependable Father, bind your heavenly road signs of sanctification, faithfulness and devotion to my heart, so I don’t stop at Haran, in Jesus’ name.
