Walking Where Jesus Walked
We are in Israel right now or maybe in Jordan. Don't really know the exact itinerary but we are over here. About eight years ago we had our first trip to the Holy Land. It was an unforgettable experience. Up to a certain point in my life, I had never wanted to go but through various circumstances God allowed for us to go. And on the first trip I was placed in charge of the group because the original leader was prevented from being there. We had 33 people on this trip. I just followed the guide's leadership and did what he suggested. Now we are in our fifth trip which includes a side trip to Petra. A trip like this amplifies the Bible. It set into context the places and the understanding of the complexity of the land of our Lord. Not everyone can go , I know that. I thought that I could never go but God has allowed us to do so. A boat ride of the Sea of Galilee, a baptism in the Jordan River, Caesarea Phillipi, the empty tomb and we can go on and on of the places we see and experience. One of the place we view is Magdala. We gaze in the ruins of an old synagogue. There is where we know Jesus spoke. There in that place our Lord open the scroll and read. It is truly real. Jesus Christ is real.
