Are you desperate for Jesus? Are you pursuing Him with a reckless abandon, to the exclusion of all other pursuits? If not, why not? What is it in your life that is more important than Christ? These are sobering questions we must all ask ourselves every day. The truth is most of us probably do not spend our days desperate for Jesus.
We claim to love Him, say we devote our lives to Him, but how are those things playing out in your life? If you’re anything like me, there is scant evidence you are desperate for Jesus. We’re desperate for success. We’re desperate for comfort and security. We may even be desperate in our pursuit of a mate. But desperate for Jesus? I don’t think so.
