I have started to think about what the implications of this might be for my walk in this life, and here are some thoughts I have had.
- As people we should be seeking out others who would help steady us as we journey forward.
- In building new friendships we must be using multiple points of contact in getting to know each other.
- When we venture into the world of familiar with long term friends it is then safe to walk with the confidence that comes from knowing.
I see this working out in the world of business as well. Companies are always trying to maintain as many points of contact with us as possible through fliers and commercials, and all the other things that go on in marketing. It is fairly cold and impersonal for the most part, but we see it non the less.
Perhaps this is something we could use in the world of church. We need to recognize that we are Christ's ambassadors and that he is miraculously using us to reveal himself to the world. The more we as christians reach out to people in our communities who don't yet know Christ, the easier it becomes for those people to trust that He loves them too. I am sure that this could carry on in a number of directions, and I hope that it does.
Bye for now,
