500 Miles

I generally wake up each morning with a song in my head. And more often than not, it’s a praise and worship song.

So the other morning I woke up with “500 miles” in my head. You know the one – The Proclaimers song from Benny & Joon.

I thought it was an odd song to have in my head. Not a song I had thought of in a while. But then I thought about Jesus singing it. Stay with me here, I know that’s strange concept.

Jesus says he will always be with us. He will go the distance for us. He would walk 500 miles, then 500 more, just to be the man who’d walk a thousand miles to fall down at our door. He will give us everything we need.

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that Jesus goes the distance. He takes the journey with us. He paid the price for us. He would walk to the ends of the earth for us. Each one of us. Isn’t that amazing?
