Christ Listens, 2of2

~ Are You Listening to Your Savior’s Feedback? ~

Passage  ~  “Then the apostles gathered to Jesus and told Him all things, both what they had done and what they had taught.  And He said to them, ‘Come aside by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.’  For there were many coming and going, and they did not even have time to eat.  So they departed to a deserted place in the boat by themselves” (Mark 6:30-32). 

Applications  ~  By keeping in daily and constant communication with our Savior we are better positioned for direct feedback and instruction.  Sometimes the Godliest thing we can do is to take a break. 

“Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know” (Jeremiah 33:3). 

Ramifications  ~  Jesus Christ has no favorites!  For example see Job 34:19, Ephesians 6:9, and Colossians 3:25.  But, and this is the important thing, Jesus Christ allows intimacy with Him for everyone who desires it.  For example, Job cried out, “Oh, for the days when I was in my prime, when God’s intimate friendship blessed my house” (Job 29:4 niv).  Think about it:  You can choose to be intimate with your Savior, with the Creator of the universe, with God Himself! 

the key question:  “Who do you say that I am?” (Matthew 16:15).  This is the most important question you will ever answer.  If you do not answer it, or answer it incorrectly, you have made the biggest mistake anyone can make!
