Jesus Prayed

by Berni Dymet

Luke 5:15 But now more than ever the word about Jesus spread abroad; many crowds would gather to hear him and to be cured of their diseases.

For many a would-be Christ-follower, something appears to be missing.  The world seems to have convinced us that outward appearances, busy lives, transactional relationships - that's where it's all at these days. 

But you and I know that that sort of life just leads to shallow relationships don't we?

Is that the sort of relationship with Jesus that your heart hungers for?

The sort of gathering where outward appearances matter?  Where the way that we dress and the way that we speak and the way that we serve God are the things that matter?  Because none of those things seemed to matter to Jesus.  Have a listen:

But now more than ever the word about Jesus spread abroad; many crowds would gather to hear him and to be cured of their diseases.
But he would withdraw to a deserted place and pray.

He was so much more concerned about His hidden relationship with Dad, than with His superstar status with the crowds.

Amidst this clamor and clanging, do you hear Him calling? Jesus
