Don't Bother Jesus
While Jesus was still speaking, someone came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader. “Your daughter is dead,” he said. “Don’t bother the teacher anymore.” Hearing this, Jesus said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid; just believe, and she will be healed.”
- Luke 8:49-50
Let's get right to the point today: apparently Jesus likes to be bothered. Some people think otherwise and are glad to share that opinion. But Jesus himself, well, he's just fine with it.
Whether it is a question you have (Jesus always stops for questions), a need you face, a situation you don't know what to do with - Jesus made a habit of letting people 'bother' him. So what keeps you from bothering him today? Go ahead and press through that obstacle and tell him what's on your mind!
*For another reference point about how the Bible wants us to bother God with our requests, this is what the spiritual leader Isaiah told the people:
You who call on the Lord,
give yourselves no rest,
and give him no rest till he establishes Jerusalem
and makes her the praise of the earth
- Isaiah 62:6-7
