I was listening to an audio sermon by T. Austin Sparks and he mentioned how 1 Peter is written to the "scattered". I was thinking how much that speaks of the way it is now.
He was also going into the concept of the church being "one new man" (Eph. 2:15) in the earth, and though we are scattered, we always recognize those of a like spirit, and that is what proves we are only one man (i.e, The Body of Christ is one).
I keep hearing "one Lord, one faith, one baptism". This verse keeps resonating in me.

Song of Solomon, first chapter, verse 14 ---
"My beloved is unto me as a cluster of camphire in the vineyards of Engedi."
Engedi - This is the place where David was sheltered in the caves. Spurgeon says that all locations in Song of Solomon are out of the way places.
None of these places are "Jerusalem". In other words they are all temporary sojourning places. Perfect picture of the pilgrim state.
From my journals, Aug. 2, 1991.

I have been thinking about Revelation chapter twelve, and the woman (Church) fleeing into the wilderness where she is sustained. I often think about the part that says that the earth helps the woman and swallows up the flood that is after her.
Sometimes you just have to go out and be in the wilderness, so yesterday I took a drive in the countryside. I have been resting in the spiritual help I received from this drive all day today.

After a long absence due to serious writer's blockage, I just wanted to share a really good piece from one of my favorite blogs, The Pen of the Wayfarer. The subject is true worship and it really spoke to my heart.
Go here to see this piece.
I had to make the link the hard way, by typing it in. If anyone could tell me how to link a post directly, I would really appreciate it.
Would also appreciate your prayers regarding this blog, I really hope to get back to writing.
"Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart,
be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer."
