Here is a tough question for a Friday morning. WHEN is the last time someone LOOKED AT YOU and said, “Man, I don’t know what you have been doing…. but I can tell that YOU HAVE BEEN WITH JESUS!” Well…..? What is your answer?
I know questions like that can be intimidating. But, here’s the deal, for ME… “I don’t have time to NOT SPEND TIME with God.” Think about that for a minute or two. The only way people can see the Jesus IN US is for us to be IN HIM. In the fast-paced society we live in you and I have to fight for time alone with God. Let me assure you that it will be totally worth it when we do make time for Him.
In the Bible it says, “Now when they (the religious authorities) saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, THAT THEY HAD BEEN WITH JESUS. (Acts 4:13 KJV)
As you go into the weekend, make time for some “alone time” with God. The closer and more intimate your relationship with God becomes, the more people can see the Jesus INSIDE OF YOU. And when they see HIM….. anything is possible!
