I Just Need More Of Jesus

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Philippians 1:21

For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.

O-bservation:

In writing to the church at Philippi, the great Apostle said, “As long as I’m here it will be about Jesus, and when I die that will be even better.”

A-pplication:

At first glance this is a very difficult verse to swallow. I say that because the first glance I had of this verse, where I actually understood what the Apostle was saying, I was probably 10 years old. Even in my twenties and thirties it was a difficult passage. I mean, as a young man for me to live was making a name for myself, and then getting married and my wife and then my kids, but all the while I was moving closer and closer in my relationship with my Lord and Savior. I’m not sure I can fully say what Paul was saying, but I’m almost there. I mean I still have goals and aspirations at this age yet, all of the goals and aspirations are connected to my relationship with Jesus. The more I live, the more I need Jesus. To accomplish one more day of goals is impossible without Jesus. I can’t believe at this age that I’m so completely dependent on Him. So maybe I am fully on the side of Paul in what he said here. To be honest, here’s what I really need, “I Just Need More Of Jesus.”

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus,

All I really ever need is You. I’ve had more than the average human will ever have, but “I Just Need More Of Jesus.” Amen
