Where are you going
 
on your journey?
 
  
   "We're all on this spiritual journey together learning to give our lives to God and live for Him." This is a phrase that I've said on different occasions during the past 8 years here at Sharon. It has often been in the context of concluding a worship time together. It is a reminder that we have chosen a purpose for our lives through our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ and an encouragement to others to join us.
     What is a spiritual journey? I believe it's found in the events of our everyday lives. As we go from one part of the day to another, one place to another, and work our way through the various relationships we have formed those pieces that come together like course plots along an unseen map. Over time this all adds up to a journey.
     Everyone is on a spiritual journey of some sort; the variables are the direction and the destination. Many wander aimlessly, traveling down the paths of life that seem best to them. If a path offers personal satisfaction of some sort, they tend to stay on it. Those paths are wide and heavily traveled but their end is destruction according to scripture, For the gate is wide and the road is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who go through it.” (Matt. 7:13 - HCSB)
     The difference for us is that we have a specific destination for our journey and a special path that we look to travel. It is the path where every step of progress along it brings glory to God through our lives. It is a path of right living, often called righteousness. Along this course one tends to ask the question, “What would please God?” rather than “What would please me?”
     What guides us in choosing our paths? What should lead us from one point plotted on that unseen map to another? God’s Word:
 
    
  Your word is a lamp for my feet
and a light on my path.
Psalms 119:105 (HCSB)

     Do not pray for easy lives,

     Pray to be stronger men.

     Do not pray for tasks equal to your powers,

     Pray for powers equal to your task.

The mission of Sharon Baptist Church is to give and live
our lives for Christ while leading others to do the same.
