Keep Watch

As Jesus approached the moment of his betrayal, he was fully aware of the dreadful task ahead.  He desired to draw near to God and took his closest disciples with him.  When Jesus wanted to approach his Father in prayer, he told his disciples to wait and keep watch with him.  Although they could not do anything about his sorrow or the task ahead, he desired their companionship.

Jesus’ request of his disciples reminds me of when I was younger and playing school sports.  We were taught that even if we weren’t playing, we should always be excited and engaged in the game.  We were told to cheer for our teammates, pay attention to what was going on, and stay ready just in case we were called on to play.

Unfortunately, when we are not on the frontlines, sometimes we disengage; we stop being available and fall asleep on the work of God altogether.  God desires our excitement and readiness for ministry.  A part of communing with God is supporting the faithful work of others and staying alert for the time when God will call us into action.

Prayer: Dear Lord, even when we don’t seem to have an active part, help us remain engaged with and excited for the work you are doing. Amen.
