Are you interested in Jesus?
I have a question: Are you interested in Jesus, who will never ignore you?
Do you know people who only want to talk about themselves? They are the ones that the minute you start talking about something that’s going on in your life, it’s obvious they’ve dismissed you and checked out. I think I actually do this unfortunately to some people that talk and talk all of the time, something I'm not proud of. I think we all know people like that. I used to ask Kathryn, "Do you ever get tired of talking?" She would say, "no!", and keep on talking!
So I have a second question: Do you treat Jesus like that? (I'm asking this to myself as well). Do we set down to talk with Jesus and end up just talking and talking without taking time to listen for Him to answer? Maybe you are just trying to get your prayer time done and check it off. Maybe you are rushing to get through your prayer time so you can move on to the next thing on your list.
Third question: Are you interested in Jesus who will never ignore you?
The truth is, your friends may dismiss you. They might find someone more exciting to hang out with. Jesus never will. He will never stop wanting to hang out with you and listen to you.
This week why not spend some time looking at your relationship with Jesus. Because your relationship with Jesus should be the most important thing in your life.
So today, ask yourself, have you taken time out of your busy life to spend time with Jesus? Have you made knowing Him a priority? Or have you spent your time seeking the approval of friends, or other interests instead of seeking after the one who loves you and will never dismiss you?
Something to think about today..."I want to know Christ–yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death". (Philippians 3:10) Is this a priority in your life? Or, are you too busy talking without listening so you can know the power of his resurrection?
