And He said to them, “Come with Me privately to a solitary place, and let us rest for a while.” For many people were coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat.
-Mark 6:31 BSB
Jesus is calling us to some ALONE time, some SLOW DOWN time. We get so busy doing THIS WORLD, that we have very little time for the one to come. We are so busy with work, with school, with our wedding plans, our retirement plans, the playoffs, football season, soccer season, kid’s events, vacations, our plans….
Leader, just like Jesus, Peter, John, Elijah, Moses; we all have 24 hours in a day, 7 days in a week and 365 in year. We are called to spend our time where it matters- with HIM. Are you giving God your first fruits, your TITHE of your time? We must remember if we are truly sons and daughters of Jehovah, then we will stand before the WORKS judgment of Christ. All our works will be thrown into the fire and only that which we did FOR Christ, for the GLORY of GOD, or because of our LOVE FOR GOD- will withstand the FIRE!
Conduit, we must remember: If the devil can’t make you BAD, he will make you BUSY! Jesus is calling us to spend time alone with HIM studying HIS WORD and seeking HIS WAY! Your LOVER is calling you for some daily INTIMACY. Lord Jesus-INTO ME SEE- Search me Lord, examine my heart. Remove anything keeping ME from being closer to YOU, oh Lord! We ask this in the precious name of our risen Lord- Jesus, the Christ! Amen!
