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.
The word gives us instructions about how to sail, summed up in the exhortation to please God.
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.
We must keep our eyes on Jesus and sail on.
