When you first fell in love you couldn’t stand not to be with them. To hear their voice, even if it is just a phone call. To get an email meant that they were thinking about you above whatever else was going on around them.
We must keep our first love first. Have you called Him today? Call upon the name of the Lord!
At daybreak, Jesus went out to a solitary place. The people were looking for him and when they came to where he was, they tried to keep him from leaving them. But he said, “I must proclaim the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns also, because that is why I was sent.” And he kept on preaching in the synagogues of Judea.
We offer today’s verse as a reminder that there are times when Jesus “stole away” to be alone with His Father. Jesus does this consistently throughout his ministry, and only a select few times does He take someone along. These are times filled with purpose for Christ, and they brim with intimacy with His Father in Heaven. In a world where there is never enough time in a day and technology surrounds, persuades, and permeates our very lifestyle; take time to steal away and just “be” with God.
