Today We Sailed On

Today We Sailed On

Day after day after day, Christopher Columbus’ ship’s log notes: “Today we sailed on.”

Day after day after day, they sailed through an open ocean, no land in sight. 

Life is often like that, requiring us to sail day after day after day, without knowing how far there is to go.

We know our goal: to be holy and blameless (Ephesians 1:4), conformed to the image of Christ (Romans 8:29).

The word gives us instructions about how to sail, summed up in the exhortation to please God.

God’s promises comfort us. We believe God’s promise that He will never leave us or forsake us (Matthew 28:20); that the Holy Spirit dwells in us (Ephesians 1:13). And so very many more promises.

In sailing on day after day after day, we have the responsibility consistently to endure. We are to stay the course, to stay on the course, to sail courageously, to sail patiently.

It seems overwhelming, but remember, Jesus is praying for us (See Jesus is Praying for You). The Holy Spirit is praying for us (See The Holy Spirit is Praying for You).

We must keep our eyes on Jesus and sail on.
