THE STORY OF JESUS: John 12:20-26
“Where I am, my servant also will be.” (John 12:26)
Usually we interpret Jesus to mean that we will go to ‘heaven’ with Him.
But Jesus is talking about following Him, being a servant and dying.
This is where Jesus is, this is what Jesus does.
Are we with Jesus in His mission, working with Him to bless others?
Through His death, Jesus saves many (John 12:24).
As His followers, we become seed, planted (sacrificed) to share Jesus with others.
Jesus promised to be with His missionaries to the very end (Matthew 28:18-20).
Many Christians like it that Jesus is with them, but are they with Jesus?
Jesus is out there among the people, sharing His life with people in need.
Too many Christians like to be saved, but show no concern for others who need Him.
Jesus uses hyperbole (strong language) – to hate their life – to expose selfish living.
Instead of being so wrapped up in your own lives, invest your life for others, for God.
A life lived sharing Jesus’ love is the life of a Jesus-follower.
He is with us, are we with Him (on the front lines)?
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, there are still many people who want to see You, who need to know You. Help me to be a blessing, not a barrier. Help me to love others, not just myself. I want to be where You are!
