Thursday is for Discipleship
“My time is not yet here” (John 7:6)
“My time has not yet fully come.” (John 7:8)
“His hour had not yet come.” (John 7:30)
“His hour had not yet come.” (John 8:20)
“Jesus, knowing his hour had come.” (John 13:1)
The whole of the Savior’s life was lived with an intense purposefulness and focus. He was living and moving toward the purpose of laying his life down as a sacrifice for sin and the redemption of the world.
Purpose. Focus. Intensity.
If this is how our Master lived how can we not live like Him?
- How do our choices reflect the intense purposefulness of the One we say we follow?
- How are we taking up our cross and following Him?
- How does the world around us know that we are living for something different from what they are living for if our lives don’t look radically different from theirs?
