When we’re caught in the rush and charge of everyday life, when we’re putting out fires and checking things off lists, we pray. We’re followers of Jesus, and that’s what His followers do. Sometimes we forget to pray, of course. But not that often and not for very long. Sooner or later, we get there. Sooner or later, we speak or whisper or shout to heaven—and especially when things get really tough.
We follow Jesus, and we believe in the power of prayer.
But what we do often forget is exactly who it is to whom we are praying. We can forget what we know about the true nature and the true essence of Jesus. We can forget His humanity—how much He understands us and our circumstances. And we forget how powerful He is—and the level of His outrageous love. We forget how He was willing to leave heaven and experience every pain, every temptation, every form of suffering—for us. Because He loves us. Because He loves you.
So, let’s do a little memory work here. Let’s not do what we usually do and just move on to the next thing. Let’s let the words in this episode’s message sink into our hearts a bit more. Let’s stay here a bit longer and meditate on what the Spirit of Jesus is saying to us and is inviting us to do—so that we don’t forget it so easily.
Come, listen to “What Jesus Wants to Say.”
