Spending Time With God 

It is often said that the company you keep shapes the person you will become. This is true of spending time with your friends and family and true of our time with Christ. 

Scripture says In Acts, something remarkable about Peter and John, while they were boldly testifying about Christ, something caused the authorities to be astonished. It wasn’t their intelligence, articulate speech, or logical arguments. They recognized that they had been with Jesus. Their bold proclamation of Christ made it obvious that they had spent time with Him and it had transformed them. 

We have the same opportunity as believers in Jesus Christ. To be transformed by the renewing of our minds, to boldly approach the throne of grace and to have life-giving fellowship with God the Father and Jesus Christ the Son. 

Today, does your life reflect your time with the Lord? Does the way you act around your family, friends, and co-workers reflect Christ in you? What priorities in your life need to change so that you can spend better and more consistent time with your Lord? Remember, just like the apostle, people will notice if you have spent time with God or you’re just faking it. 

“Now when they [the authorities] saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated, common men, they were astonished. And they recognized that they had been with Jesus….” Acts 4:13 (Logos Bible Software)

Let’s Pray 

Yahweh, thanks for your transforming power. Father, may my passion for spending time with you, increase to a way that the watching world notices the Christ in me. In Jesus name, Amen!
