" He made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side..." Mark 6:45
Christians tend to think that God is preparing us for some end goal, or future point. In today's reading Chambers makes the case that the actual journey is what God is after, not the end result.
God is walking with us NOW, and moment by moment obedience is the goal.
What we see as only the process of reaching a particular end, God sees as the goal itself.
