Invest My Time in Jesus

INVESTING MY TIME IN JESUS

S. Mark 4:24, 34

And He said to them, Be careful what you are hearing. The measure [of thought and study] you give [to the truth you hear] will be the measure [of virtue and knowledge] that comes back to you--and more [besides] will be given to you who hear.

34 He did not tell them anything without a parable; but privately to His disciples (those who were peculiarly His own) He explained everything [fully].

O. However much of our 'precious private' time that we spend meditating, studying and thinking on something, is the measure of understanding that will come back to us. (wheather it's the Word of God or a TV shows, 'things', iphone, etc.)

Jesus gave the example of planting a mustard seed. If we plant a tiny mustard seed of God's Word in our minds, spending our 'precious private' time there, it will grow, spread and become huge with understanding. The knowledge and understanding of Jesus' and all that He really is' can then spread to our actions and words...and we will KNOW Him inside and out!

A. When I want to get to know another person I automatically want to listen intently to what he/she says, watching what they do and how they do it. I want to know that person through they're words and actions while searching to know they're thoughts and feelings, too.

This is how I can come to know Jesus deeper. The more time I spend with Him, studying Him in the Bible, the more I get to know Him. If I take the time spent on the OTHER things I 'want to know about' (i.e. tv shows, rock stars, dancing stars, iphones) and invest THAT time in getting to know HIM, He can reveal more of Himself to me. The amount of time and 'heart' I give to Him, is the amount of understanding and 'heart-change' I will receive from Him.

P. My desire, Father, is to come to a new and deeper understanding of Your Son. I desire to have a renewed relationship...more intimacy...with Your Son! Open my heart wide to that, Father! Fill me so full of Jesus that He flows out of me AUTOMATICALLY as my FIRST NATURE! Invest my time in Jesus!
