He appointed twelve that they might be with him and that he might send them out to preach - Mark 3:14.

While there are many intriguing and fascinating thoughts in this short sentence, the one phrase that touches my heart is this one: “...that they might be with him...” This reminds me of that great passage in Acts 4:13 “...they recognized that they had been with Jesus.”

Now I know that we can't “be with” Jesus in the same way the 12 apostles were. But, we do have the four Gospels that tell His story. When was the last time we sat down and read one straight through? When was the last time we read a Gospel, and asked Jesus to make Himself, and his will known to us?

Why not spend some time being with Jesus this week!

Loving Father, I thank you for the Scriptures. I thank you especially for the Gospels that tell the story of your Son. Forgive me for not spending more time getting to know Him better. As I recommit myself to seek after your Son, by the power of the Holy Spirit, bless me with a genuine sense of His presence, and a clearer knowledge of Hhis will. In the wonderful name of Jesus I pray. Amen.

Be encouraged!
