Pilgrims, Not Mere Travelers

March 8, 2011

“Trouble, famine, hardship, wilderness, exile – these are the biblical words that describe our present existence. It’s not a picnic. We are pilgrims, not picnickers. But we are pilgrims progressing somewhere, not merely hopeful travelers in search of a destination. The resurrection of Christ assures us that the promises of God are true and that we can count on them. In the midst of the deepest reality gap, we are following in the footsteps of our Savior, and one day the gap will be closed, faith will be sight, and we will be forever with the Lord in glory. In the meantime, we say with joy, ‘The Lord is risen! His is risen indeed!'”

Iain M. Duguid, Living in the Gap Between Promise and Reality: The Gospel According to Abraham, 27-28.
