come away

19 Jul

The apostles gathered around Jesus, and told him all that they had done and taught. He said to them, “Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while.” For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat. And they went away in the boat to a deserted place by themselves. Now many saw them going and recognized them, and they hurried there on foot from all the towns and arrived ahead of them. As he went ashore, he saw a great crowd; and he had compassion for them, because they were like sheep without a shepherd; and he began to teach them many things. (Mark 6:30-34, NRSV)

Jesus called the disciples away to rest.

Do you take time to rest?

Take time away?

Just unplug and do nothing?

Read a good book, relax by a lake, on a beach, with friends and family?

Jesus listened to all the disciples had done as He sent them out, and when they were done telling Him, He said come away with me and let us find some time to rest and recharge.

We need to take that time with Jesus.

So listen and when He says come away and rest, go and do it!
