There are a lot of things I could talk about from this passage, but verse 26 struck me, probably because I talked about it this past Sunday.
If anyone serves me, he must follow me. Where I am, there my servant also will be.
Is that your mindset?
“Jesus I want to be where where you are.”
Of course Jesus is with us wherever we are. He is always trying to speak to us. To lead us. To show us what he’s doing.
But are we with him? In other words, are we consciously listening for his voice? Are we looking for his direction? How often do our thoughts turn to him during the day?
Only in the morning when we’re reading the Bible? Only at meals just before we eat?
How about the rest of the day?
Lord Jesus you are always with me. But help me to truly recognize that. Each day, each hour, each moment, help me to hear your voice and recognize your leading. I want to be where you are.
