Tandem Life

Have you ever wanted to go skydiving? The thrill! The exhilaration! The absolute terror?! If you’re not quite so daring, you could try tandem skydiving instead. This much safer option means you are connected to a harness, which is attached to a highly experienced tandem instructor. The instructor guides you through each and every step prior to, during, and after the jump. You are secured to the instructor the whole time. From exiting the plane to landing safely on the ground, the instructor is responsible for and in control of all that is happening. Your part is to rest in the instructor’s sure control and enjoy! The tandem’s sure connection means placing all your trust in the instructor’s abilities and knowledge. For all practical purposes, you are placing your life in the instructor’s hands. It would not be good to fight against the movements of the instructor or seek to go in a different direction from where he is leading. No matter what happens in the journey, you can trust the safety of the harness and the instructor. What if we thought about our Christian journey as being on a tandem flight with the Lord? When we come to faith in Jesus, we are attached to Him. We are inseparable and connected together forever. The Holy Spirit is our highly qualified instructor, there from the beginning: our traveling partner who guides us all along our journey till we safely reach our final destination of eternity with Jesus (Ephesians 4:30). As Christians, we rest and abide in Him. • Deborah del Villar • Read Romans 8. When you’re tempted to forget you belong to Jesus, what are some truths from Scripture you can focus on? I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20 (NIV)
