Do you struggle with spending time with the Lord? Do you know why you are struggling? Is the daily grind of life too much to handle? Do you feel overwhelmed with juggling your life, and your family? Are you aware you need spend time with the Lord but don’t? If you answered yes to these questions, you are not alone. Everyone has felt overwhelmed with their lives and have had issues trying to figure out how to fit a relationship with Christ into their lives.
I have interviewed a few individuals. I asked them what was it that held them back from spending time with the Lord. One said, “It was them, that they are self-centered, therefore they didn’t honor the relationship in Christ. Their self-serving mentality was getting in the way of a true relationship with Christ.” Another said, “It’s not that I don’t want to spend time with Christ, I am too busy.”
We have a pull of the flesh to do what we want to in order to fulfill our own selfish desire. Therefore, we tend to push Christ to the side until we need something. We need not to get in the habit of treating Christ like our own personal genie. Christ isn’t one that we have tied in the corner and call out to Him only when we need something. We need to come to Him daily, and even second by second. The pull of the flesh is real and depending upon how much you live in the flesh will determine how strong the pull of the flesh. We are to focus on Christ. We were born to praise, therefore, the pull of the flesh would be non-existence. One may ask, how can that be? Praise is extremely powerful and breaks the chains off of us.
Our lives are busy with family, careers and hobbies. Where do we fit Jesus in our daily lives? You’re not alone. We try to work through our day, just to hurry for the next.
Jesus set wonderful examples, because of this, we learn from birth to His ministry. Our Savior born in a manger, his life threatened, (Matthew 2) nevertheless, King Herod, a jealous man, wanting no one to overtake his thrown. The will of Our Father was Jesus’ priority consequently, and at age twelve he knew the significance. Days passed and Mary and Joseph didn’t realize Jesus was not with the caravan. Mary and Joseph went back for Jesus, taking them three days. Mary found him where? Jesus said “I’m all about my Father’s business,” where would you think I would be?” (Luke 72:41-52.)
Twelve years old, Jesus put God first. Baptism (Matthew 3) and temptation (Matthew 4) were vital. Jesus experienced every single temptation we’ve experienced in life, there’s not one thing that God has not experienced. Let’s recap. Jesus had his life threatened. How are Christians affected? These four life events are the foundation for the Christian walk and how to support a balanced relationship with Christ. After these crucial events, Jesus began His ministry. We can conclude these four events are vital for Christ’s followers. Let us take a journey through a few of Jesus’ life events. We begin to understand the importance of incorporating Jesus in our daily living.
