What Makes ‘Time With Jesus’ Worth It?

I have a challenging set of questions for you today. What makes ‘time with Jesus’ worth it for you?

  • Is it the fact that you can sit down and get a breather from an over-crowded lifestyle?
  • Is it so you can get a blog post out of it?
  • Is it so you can impress someone with your knowledge?
  • Is it so you can feel better about yourself?
  • Is it so you can interact with all your Twitter friends?

I’m not saying any of these things are bad. But I find myself (all too often) spending time with Jesus with my blog open and Tweetdeck staring me down. It’s almost like if I don’t get some important piece of revelation than my ‘time with Jesus’ was a waste.

I want to return to the beauty of loving Jesus and spending time with Jesus for WHO He is. The revelation He gives me isn’t a means to impress others or advance my career, but to stay rooted in holiness and exclusive passion for Him.

Time with Jesus is worth it every time because I…am…with…Jesus.

  1. Good good thoughts. It stinks having to question our motives all of the time but it’s something I’ve had to personally learn to do especially in regards to social networking. Checking our motives to make sure that the reason we do blog or tweet a revelation we have gotten from/about God isn’t to impress others and make ourselves feel more spiritual- but just to share and see if it could help someone else. Good thoughts Dave!

    • True that, Tiffany. I think as long as we are on earth, we’ll have to continue checking our motives!
