Then Jesus left a second time and prayed, “My Father! If this cup cannot be taken away unless I drink it, your will be done.Matthew 26:45
Much of what we do in our Christian life comes from what we are taught through the Bible, discipleship, mentoring and our Pastors at our home churches. We learn what is important and essential in our life and then we are to go out and apply it to our life/ministry/business.
With all of our connections on social media, texting and emails we have lost the art of genuine friendships and relationships. You know the ones where you stop your busy day and grab coffee or lunch with a friend, for no other reason than you just want to spend time together. Unfortunately we are seeing even some marriages loosing the art of connecting as a result.
This has truly become a lost art in society in general. We have become too busy being busy to invest in a true relationship.
We know the Bible tells us to gather together and build each other up…
“And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.”
Hebrews 10:24-25 NKJV
Some of you may be saying, what is that?
You don’t know my day, everything I have to accomplish. The kids pulling on one side, the business pulling on the other one and then there is my in-laws…and so it goes.
We have made our selves so busy being busy we have pushed out our quiet time with the Lord.
With spring we think about cleaning, new birth, renewal
and the Resurrection of Jesus!
Spring is the perfect time to change your batteries in your smoke detectors as you set your clocks forward, deep clean the house, weed the garden and perhaps clean out your closets. BUT what about your mind, body and spirit?
When was the last time you paused and took a look at your life and the busyness around you?
