Nudgings #26 - The Next Step


What joy for those whose strength comes from the Lord, who have set their minds on a pilgrimage [to God]. (Psalm 84:5, NLT)

All of life for the Christian is a pilgrimage. It is a journey with Jesus whose destination is the Kingdom of God. Every journey is realized one step at a time, and although one step seems small and insignificant, it is all that matters as we live and move and have our being in Jesus.

We can carry the title of Christian and attend church faithfully, but to progress on our pilgrimage we must walk the talk. When push comes to shove, we have to trust Jesus—and it all starts with one step—leave your nets (Mark 1), let the dead bury their dead (Matthew 8), burn the plow (1 Kings 19), call upon Me (Psalm 50:15), take up your cross (Luke 9), come follow Me (Matthew 4).

A life for Christ is realized one step at a time. Stepping out in faith is hard. We don’t see clearly and we don’t know the way. But that’s OK. We don’t need all the answers right now, we just need to take the next step, and with every step the view changes, new paths reveal themselves and we find that we are on the Way.

Jesus is the Way. Take the next step—trust Him.
