Come Awake

The apostles returned to Jesus and told him all that they had done and taught. And he said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a desolate place 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 desolate place by themselves. | Mark 6:30-32

Verse 31 stirs my heart deeply. If ever there existed a true romantic, it was Jesus. Okay, I know that sounds a little weird… but you have to admit: it’s true. Yes, we see replicas of this love when someone gives up their life for another. Police officers, firefighters, soldiers, and even ordinary people like us perform such brave acts all the time. But never to the degree in which Jesus Himself did. He did it best. He did it completely. He did it once and for all.
