I will abandon the news today and share with you what struck me…
May seem silly – but it is something I experience daily here in the land of the Bible.
You see, man is part of a chain in history, and while it's true that in our day things have progressed hugely due to technology, how much has man changed?
Everyday I travel out of the stone encasement called Jerusalem, the holy city. When I pass out the gates, I am 'leaving history', and passing by countless folks who've traveled half the world's distance to come and experience this place – to take a step back in time…
There's no doubt about the impact it makes upon people.
The stories that have been read to us from our earliest days of Sunday School reach out to us and grab hold of us – as one sits upon a boat on the Galilee or walks up the Way of Sorrows.
It all becomes so very real.
I understand that for many, the words, promises, and events of the Bible take on a personal note when your a pilgrim here.
So much of that experience is started back home in the relationship with God in our normal cluttered, often rushed and tired lives.
But when here – the stones do seem to cry out…
Man still needs a Savior, God still loves His creation, and that Love came down right here in this land for us to experience wherever we are.
Friends, consider joining a LeSEA tour to this Land of the Bible and see for yourself where Heaven literally came down to earth in Bethlehem. Visit the way of life in Jesus day at Nazareth… And stand upon the Mount of Olives where Jesus spent so much of His time that we have recorded in the Gospels.
