Life’s a Pilgrimage

Pilgrims' Bridge - Puente de la Reina, Spain

The apostle Peter reminds us that our life here on earth is a pilgrimage. We are foreigners and exiles (1 Peter 2:11). How easy it is to get attached to this life. Too often we are like toddlers holding fast to a toy which can’t be wrestled from their grip. We grab hold of, and obsess about, the temporary, while God has something far more eternal and spectacular  set aside for us.

I too, find myself often living a short-sighted life. Peter reminds me that God has called me to His eternal glory. (1 Peter 5:10). And our Saviour, himself, said on many occasions, “Follow me” (e.g.My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. John 10:27). The more we learn to treat this life as a journey, the healthier our spiritual “walk” will be.
