I'm Not On A Journey

"I am not on a journey. Christ's body and blood are present with the bread and wine. He is at the right hand of the Father, and the Father's right hand is everywhere. Where I am, Jesus is with me. Jesus brought me to my destination when He baptized me, He keeps me in my destination through his Word and Supper, and I have been home ever since. So don't invite me to a so-called journey of synthetic, self-chosen works, laws, satisfactions, disciplines, or whatever the vogue term for such vainglory is now. Word, Sacrament, and Cross are my origin, life, and destiny."

-- T.R. Halvorson
