This Nowhere Man Is Here
Summer 2008 - Letâ€™s Get Real
Editorâ€™s Note: The following letter was written by a person who has been a Christian for over 30 yearsâ€”a Christian who has desired little more in life than to walk with God. He writes to two close friends who have ministered to him. I publish this letter for three reasons: First, we see incredible value and beauty when one Christian sacrifices his time to refresh another who is stuck in a spiritual desert. Second, the letter articulates one Christianâ€™s personal journey that I know speaks for many, perhaps millions, who struggle in their relationship with God. Because a Christianâ€™s ability to abide in Christ and His love (John 15) is one of the devilâ€™s greatest fears, itâ€™s no wonder this writer says what he says. But certainly he is not alone. I am confident that many peopleâ€”men and women alikeâ€”will read this letter while shaking (and crying) because parts of it, if not all of it, will hit very close to home. Finally, I publish this letter so you can pray for the writer and for others who have a profound desire to enter into Godâ€™s rest as they prepare their hearts for eternity.
