I Peter 2:25
This story is of a couple that had been married 60 years. The year they married Pa bought a brand new 1954 Ford pickup truck. For 60 years he kept that truck and it still ran and looked as good as the day he drove it off the showroom floor.
Every Saturday for 60 years Ma and Pa would go to town, Ma sitting in the middle with her hand upon his knee and a smile on her face. With Pa behind the wheel, off to the ice cream parlor they would go.
This particular year their anniversary fell on a Saturday, so as every Saturday before, to town they went. Pa starts up the truck. Ma leans her arm out the door window; fumbling with the side mirror says to Pa, "You know, Pa, we have been married for 60 years and something doesn't seem the same. Remember when we used to go to town; I would be sitting so close to you that folks couldn't tell who was driving. Yep 60 years and for some reason we are not close like we used to be." Then she started fumbling with the side mirror again.
Grandpa just smiled, cleared his throat and said, "Ma for 60 years I have been sitting in the same spot. I haven't moved one inch!"
We need to look at our relation with Jesus, when we feel it is not the same and we feel far away from him. We need to see that we are the ones who have moved, he hasn't and he is still right where he needs to be. We have scooted to the other side of the seat with our hand out the window fumbling with the mirror.
