Excerpt from Devotional Sessions | Practical Spirituality
But Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life (John 6:68, prompted from Devotional Sessions – Phil Rice).
Take some quiet space, away from distraction and ask the question… How do I experience Jesus? Do I experience him in a compartment of my life? As an auxiliary experience or luxury? Or is he my end, the fullness of my experience?
Jesus, I want to experience you as my all, my end. I want to be one who says, where else could I go? I have searched and I have found no other like you. I have searched and I have found no other thoughts like your thoughts. You are my end.
My personal engagement with this session:
This passage of scripture brings such refreshing dimension to my conversation with God. It’s as if all of the little things feeding the worries of this life are set aside for a moment and we begin interacting around real things… deep things, the things well below the surface. These thoughts allow me to experience Jesus for who he truly is, not commodity, not auxiliary. But all.
Thank you Jesus that you have invited me to be with you where you are. Thank you that you’ve invited me to know you as the fullness of life, as the beginning and as the end.
What life. What refreshment.
