WHAT TO DO ABOUT JESUS?

 
They "again reached for rocks to stone Him." —John 10:31
 

As we near the end of Lent, Jesus, as gentle and humble as He is (Mt 11:29), can nevertheless start to get on our nerves. Jesus may be quiet (see Mt 12:19), but He's insistent. He keeps knocking on the door of our hearts ever so lightly but ever so frequently (Rv 3:20). He can't bear to see us unrepentant of our sins.

It gradually becomes more and more difficult for us to brush Jesus off. He only takes "no" for an answer for a short time. We almost have to yell at Him, throw things at Him, or even crucify Him to get rid of Him (see Jn 10:39).

However, some people open the door to Jesus. They repent and believe (see Jn 10:42). They thank Jesus that they did not give in to their irritation with Him by throwing Him out of their lives. Instead they threw sin out of their lives by repenting.

If Jesus is "getting under your skin," get under His lordship. Accept Him as Lord of your life. You can't ignore Jesus forever. Eventually His love will provoke you to reject or accept Him.

 
Prayer: Jesus, I repent of my sins and give my life to You — totally and forever.
Promise: "Sing to the Lord, praise the Lord, for He has rescued the life of the poor from the power of the wicked!" —Jer 20:13
Praise: Margie attended her first healing service. Now doctors no longer detect a heart murmur.
