“It would be well to spend a thoughtful hour each day in contemplation of the life of Christ. We should take it point by point, and let the imagination grasp each scene, especially the closing ones. As we dwell upon His great sacrifice for us, our confidence in Him will be more constant, our love will be quickened, and we will be more deeply filled with His Spirit.” -Desire of Ages, p. 83
Scripture Reading: 1 Timothy 6:12, TNIV- Scott Weber1
Revelation 22:1–3, 20, TNIV Scott Weber2
Jesus has time and attention for you personally! He is interested in the entire human race, but He is specifically interested in you. In order for your friendship with
Him to grow, you need to have times where you and He are one-on-One. There is
no substitute for this.
Jesus called Himself the Bread of Life to remind us of our need to “eat” spiritually
on a daily basis. No one can eat for another. A good breakfast is the most important meal of the day. This principle transfers into the spiritual life. One secret of a
meaningful relationship with God is to start each day taking some quiet time alone
In Revelation 3:20, Jesus says He is knocking at the door of your heart and is longing for fellowship with you. Ask Him to fulfill the promise of Isaiah 50:4 and waken
you morning by morning. Then respond by getting up when He knocks –even if it
seems like an “ungodly” hour.
According to Scripture, Jesus made time alone with God His first priority. No other
life was ever as crowded with labor and responsibility as His; yet how often He was
found in prayer! How constant was His communion with God! Again and again in
the history of His earthly life are found records such as these: “Rising up a great
while before day, He went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.”
“Great multitudes came together to hear, and to be healed by Him of their infirmities.
And He withdrew Himself into the wilderness, and prayed.” “And it came to pass
in those days, that He went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in
prayer to God.” Mark 1:35; Luke 5:15, 16; 6:12.
Follow His example, and you will survive any revival seminar.
