Getting in Deep
I was thinking this morning about our attitudes to the Light of Christ within us and our willingness to trust in it, and I imagined a swimming pool in which the water represents God.
Some people like the pool area, maybe like the people who swim there, but aren't willing to jump in. They just sit in the chairs around the pool, and talk about the nature of the water.
Others, like me, get in the pool, but stay in the shallower areas where they are still standing on their own feet.
Where I wish to be, though, is the deep end, where I am no longer standing on my feet, but bouyed completely by the love of God.
