Paul here, presumably, tells us that we are not only one with Christ, but we are one with each other, our brothers and sisters in Christ. The fact of being on the journey with such a large body of believers does not change the fact that we often find ourselves "going it alone" on long stretches of the journey. The fact is, walking with Christ will take you places no one can go with you. If you are the kind of Christian who shows up in church on Sunday, and expects to be fed from the "Good Book" once a week, before heading back out the door to wait for another week, then you probably have not stepped out on these spiritual adventures with Jesus. But, I take it that you are an adventurer yourself.
Yes, even when I walk through the shadows of death... I will not be afraid for you are with me. Those most touching words remind us that like David a few thousand years ago, the Lord is our Shepherd. But, where is it He is leading you? I would love to share with you a gift. I have 5 copies of the treasured story, "Hinds Feet on High Places" by Hannah Hurnard that I will give away.
It is the story of a young woman named Much Afraid, and her journey away from her Fearing family and into the High Places of the Shepherd, guided by her two companions Sorrow and Suffering. It is an allegory of a Christian devotional life from salvation through maturity. It aims to show how a Christian is transformed from unbeliever to immature believer to mature believer, who walks daily with God as easily on the High Places of Joy in the spirit as in the daily life of mundane and oftentimes humiliating tasks that may cause Christians to lose perspective.
The book takes its title from Habakkuk 3:19, "The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places."
