When the apostles returned, they gave an account to Him of all that they had done. Taking them with Him, He withdrew by Himself to a city called Bethsaida. But the crowds were aware of this and followed Him; and welcoming them, He began speaking to them about the kingdom of God and curing those who had need of healing.
Luke 9:10-11 NASB
Jesus always finds time for people. Taking His disciples He sought to withdraw with them. . . BUT “the crowds… followed Him”. Did you notice Jesus’s response? He welcomed them and then took the opportunity to tell them about the kingdom of God.
How often do we want to get away? Away from the neighbor who wants to chit chat when you have so much to do, if you ever make it through the front door. Or the hairdresser who talks with her hands so this quick haircut turns out to be longer than you planned. We are always on the run. Go, go, go.
🌹How many missed opportunities have we passed by, ignored, set aside, to share the gospel? To speak of the kingdom of God?
Continually Seeking Him,
