Take Time for Jesus

Take time to behold Him,
  The world rushes on;
Spend much time in secret
  With Jesus alone.
By looking to Jesus
  Like Him thou shalt be;
Thy friends, in thy conduct,
  His likeness shall see – Hymn:  Take Time to Behold Him

Take time out of your day to spend with Jesus.  Begin your morning with Him.  Talk to Him.  Read His Word.  And listen.  Too often, we talk but we don’t listen.  Prayer should be a two way communication.

Before you go to bed, take time to thank Jesus for helping you to get through another day and for keeping you safe.  There are many who will not live to see tomorrow.  End your day with Jesus.

The more time we spend with Jesus, the more we get to know Him and the more we become like Him.  And the less sway the world has over us.  And when people look at us, they will see Him.

Don’t get caught up in the busyness of life.  Take time to behold the One who gave His life for you.


  1. Each thought and each temper beneath His control
    Thus led by the Spirit to fountains of love
    Thou then shall be fitted His mercy to prove.

    That was from memory. I forgot the first part. Thanks for sharing.
