Like us, every river has its own characteristics and temperament. What happens when it en- counters the sea? For some time at least, the river remains a river, but through some tur- moil, it is gradually absorbed by the ocean. The river becomes less and less, the ocean more and more. This describes quite nicely the spiritual life. When a person is bap- i tized he or she is born of God and puts on Christ. But it is only the,be- i ginning.The river has just now touched the ocean. We have now just been introduced to the Christ. We hear His command to love. We hear His invitation to become "the salt of the earth." We are to surrender to Christ just as the river surrenders to the ocean. Are all those stories in the Gospels just about Jesus and His disciples? No, they are the story of you and me. Can you see yourself in Peter? As long as he looked to his Master, he walked on the water (Matthew 14:22- 33). When his attention drifted to the waves he began to sink. Peter failed the test. He didn't trust. We shouldn't despair however. Failure isn't cause for condemnation. Rather, it is a school for learning to love and trust the Lord. We come to understand that we sink when we look to ourselves or focus on the waves. Our spiritual victory is when we look to Him. The more we do this, the ~ more "salty" we become. We become more like Christ. It takes our whole lives to learn this. Judging others, fear, and hate keep us from love, and keep us from God. This is the spiritual battle ground within each of us. It is as if the river rejects the salt and wants to remain a river. We can be blind to, or become comfortable with, our own evil and prejudice. It prevents us from seeing and desiring Christ. A family was enjoying their day at the beach. The children were mak- ing sand castles and bathing in the ocean. Suddenly, an old lady ap- peared. Her gray hair was blowing in the wind. Her clothes were dirty and ragged. She talked to herself as she bent down from time to time and pick things out of the sand and put them in the bag she was carrying. The parents called the children to their side and told them to stay away from the old woman. As she passed by, bending down every now and then to pick things up, she smiled at the family. But her greeting wasn't returned. Weeks later, the parents learned that the little old lady had died. They were told that she walked the beach every week picking up pieces of glass or other sharp objects so children wouldn't cut their feet. The woman's love and greeting was rejected. The family rejected Christ in her and treated her with fear and hate. What about me and you? When the river meets the sea, there is turmoil and battle. When we step onto the path that leads to Christ there is also turmoil and a battle. In the Christian life we like to talk about peace,joy, and love. We speak of Resurrection. But getting there isn't all that peaceful. There is a re- jection, a crucifixion. We find ourselves being Peter again, lacking the courage to tell even a young servant girl that he knows Jesus. We are the Pharisee thanking God how good we are, while we look down our noses at tattered, old, and smelly women who pick things off the ground. Jacob Johnson. Surrender. Let go.
