Jesus Didn’t Just Talk About It, He Did It!

S. O. A. P.

Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!

S-cripture:

Luke 22:40,41
On reaching the place, he said to them, “Pray that you will not fall into temptation.” He withdrew about a stones throw beyond them, knelt down, and prayed.

O-bservation:

On the night Jesus was betrayed by Judas Iscariot, and then would be judged and the next day crucified, He told his disciples to pray first. Then he went a distance from them, but not far, and he prayed. The thing we “Followers Of Jesus” all love about this story is that “Jesus Didn’t Just Talk About It, He Did It!

A-pplication:

It’s one thing to talk a good game but it’s entirely different when the talker actually gets in the game and stays till the end. That was the earthly life of Jesus at every turn. He would give a directive or a parable and then he would actually live the directive out, or model the truth of the parable he had told. On a crazy horrendous night, when it must have felt to the disciples that the earth was shifting beneath them, Jesus said, “You need to pray.” But, “Jesus Didn’t Just Talk About It, He Did It!”

P-rayer:

Dear Jesus,
This morning I’m finished with great talk and no action. Please help me model what I talk about. That’s what you did, and I want to be like you. Amen
