The heart of Jesus Christ is that we would be His disciples. He took the initiative to start this amazing journey of salvation and transformation, setting our compass on “True North”.
There is a significant and critical difference between True North and Magnetic North. Not knowing this will cause you to believe you are going in the right direction but you will miss the destination.
True north will lead you directly to the North Pole. Magnetic north is influenced by a “pulling” effect by the earth’s magnetic core. In 2002, magnetic north was 590 miles away from true north, but that distance also changes from time to time based upon the strength of the pull.
The Word of God is the truth and the Spirit of God is the guide.
Our destination in life is to walk the Word of God (TRUE NORTH) but we cannot do that successfully without a qualified guide to keep us from being pulled off course. In life, there is always a pulling on us (magnetic north) that can lead us off the right path.
Their compass is telling them that they are going north but they are 590 miles off and don’t know it. They become discouraged in the journey because it doesn’t take them where they thought it should, and they never seem to arrive.
Jesus said, “Come follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Our calling is to be His disciples following His direction.
