Jesus is Never Too Busy for You

Jesus is Never Too Busy for You

“Why are you sleeping?” he asked them. “Get up and pray so that you will not fall into temptation.” (Luke 22:46, NIV).

We live in a society where everyone is too busy doing something else other than what we should be doing.

On the night that he was betrayed, Jesus was praying in the Garden of Gethsemane.  After a while, Jesus, who had asked his disciples to pray also (v.40), went and found them sleeping. I had never understood the meaning of what Jesus said to them before. I thought that Jesus was upset with them.

True, Jesus was disappointed in them, but more than that, he was concerned for them. He knew that over the next three days they would experience the most difficult time of their lives. That’s why, no matter how busy he was, he took the time to warn them and to encourage them for the disappointment that was to come.

How wonderful it is to see, that even at this most difficult of his life, our Lord had time for his disciples! Jesus is never too busy for you. Even when your world is falling apart, Jesus still has time for you.

Hebrews 1:3 says that Jesus sustains “sustaining all things by his powerful word.” And even if you’re asleep and disobedient like the disciples, he still has time for you. – Eliezer Gonzalez

Eli’s Reflection: Why is it so easy for us to think that Jesus is angry at us, instead of seeing his dealings with us as being loving, and meant to strengthen and encourage us? Why do we so often get Jesus all wrong?

Come Back to Jesus!

How about you, friend? May I ask you this? Have you turned from your sins and received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Is your life truly devoted to Him? Do you bear the fruit of a life lived for Christ? And, if so, are you taking the love, time, and care daily to tell the world about Him? Are you sold out to Jesus? And to telling people the only way to everlasting life is through Christ?

Blessedness in Singleness

The single life for Christ is not for everyone. But for those of us it is for, the Lord will give us the strength we need, the love we desire, absolutely everything we need to walk day by day through this life without a human romantic companion, knowing there is no companion anyway that even comes close to the one who is forever. Than to Jesus. Than to Christ. Than to the Lord! AMEN!

When God Chooses Your Life

What if you surrendered your life 100% to the Lord Jesus Christ? Not holding anything back? Willing to yield to Him your plans, dreams, agenda, calendar, time, heart, your work life, your social life, your entertainment life, your romantic life, your family life, your travel life, your sports and hobby life, your housing, your plans, your absolutely everything? Would your life look the same as it does right now? Or would it be entirely different? Or perhaps somewhere in between?

I Know You Have a Plan

I knew even before I was born, the Lord had already planned my life not to mention my life’s purpose. I knew He knew every detail of all to which He would call me, exactly how He would enable me and provide for me, how He would lead me, the help He would send me, everything, absolutely everything, necessary for me to fulfill the life and life’s purpose to which the Lord has called me.
