Are You Too Busy for God’s Truth?

“Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.”

John 8:31

Ponder This

Discipleship is costly, but ignorance is far more costly. How do you buy the truth? How do you purchase the truth? First, it’s going to cost you precious time. That’s one of the costs you’re going to have to pay. You’re not going to get it by osmosis. Time is precious, but it is not as precious as truth. Hurry is the death knell of prayer and Bible study. You want to buy the truth? It’s going to cost you time.

Many won’t pay that price. This is evidenced by the reality that prayer and Bible study are one of the lowest things on our priority lists in the morning. We wake up a little late, hurry through the morning, check the day’s news, drink a scalding cup of coffee, rush out the door, and say, “Lord, bless this mess.” But discipleship is going to cost you time. Take time to be holy.

  • How willing are you to pay the cost of time for the sake of discipleship to Jesus?
  • How does your schedule and routine support or contradict this claim?
