We have keeping up with the Kardashians, keeping up with the Westbrooks’, and keeping up with the Joneses, or what about Empire or Power, just to name a few! I can’t help but wonder how many of us tune in to “Keeping Up with Jesus?” Do we spend as much time tuning in to Jesus by listening to His voice as we do with today’s popular TV shows? Do we binge watch Jesus? What about studying His word? Spending time with Him, having discussions about what He has downloaded to us like we discuss what happened on last night TV shows. I’m not trying to knock television, for I do have my favorite shows I enjoy watching, but this topic dropped in my spirit one morning at 2:00am and at the time when my heart is crying out to God.
I believe if we’d put half as much time in keeping up with Jesus than we do keeping up with the popular TV shows then we wouldn’t have time to keep up with that which does not center around Him; that which does not edify us and Glorify Him; we would be more Christ focused instead of self- focused and perhaps our world would be in a better state if we all tuned in to “Keeping Up With Jesus.” However, because we have so many distractions now days everywhere we turn there is something new, we can’t keep up and often times miss what God is trying to do for us, around us, and through us. So let’s change the channel to something new especially as we approach another Resurrection Sunday. “Keeping Up With Jesus” is on 7 days a week, 24 hours a day; I guarantee you’ll find and learn more on this station than you will on any other.
Thank God for His Son Jesus, let’s not miss what He’s doing not just in this season but in 2K17!
