Christ wants us to do more than stand on the edge and reach out, He wants us to jump in, submerging ourselves in Him. He is interested in response, not results. The Holy Spirit is always with us, even when we are not with Him. Christ knew we would have weakness, and completed His work with His gift of the transcendent reality of God. We limp along strengthened by the HS, who constantly nudges us back into submertion, soaking us in the daily swim of sanctification.

Jeff, I like your take on the analogy. Its been a long time since Regent eh?

I can’t agree more. To be submerged fully in Christ is the only way to live. Unfortunately, many people get fooled by the success God grants them and they may gradually become more independent. The servants of God are not immune from this as we already know. When we try to serve him in our own strength we find our service to be laborious and we are less responsive to His leading.

  • In the Celtic tradition "Thin Places" are places where the spiritual and the natural world intersect. It is a place where it is possible to touch and be touched by God. "Thin Spaces" are the moments when we experience a deep sense of God’s presence in our everyday world.
