Something I learnt...

I recently heard an analogy about the Trinitarian God (God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit):

Imagine your life is you sailing thru an ocean, and your goal (God) is an island in the centre of the ocean. Now you may be far from the island, and you may be near it. But the distance doesn't matter; just because you're near it doesn't mean you're gonna get there. Which reminds me of the parable of the Prodigal Son: the younger son would be sailing quite far away from the island, while the elder son would be quite near it. How then can you land on the island? By making sure you're always heading towards the island. So if you're far away but you faithfully steer towards it, you'll get there. If you're near it but you're not heading towards it, obviously you're not going to get there. So no matter what you do or experience, as long as you keep your sight focussed on Jesus (ask Him to guide you in your daily decisions and forgive you if you sin, among others) you'll get to Him eventually. And that means Heaven.
