"And he came to the disciples and found them sleeping. And he said to Peter, 'So, could you not watch with me one hour?'" ESV
When we first become believers in Jesus Christ, we are like little babies and are quite self-centered. We are pretty aware of what we need from Him and what He is doing in our lives. We get used to the Lord watching over us. That is what He does and will always do. But, as we grow up spiritually, we come to realize Jesus Christ is asking us watch with Him. He desires that we see things through His eyes and to be aware of His working all around us and in others. Are we still focused on Him watching over us, or are we becoming more mature, watching with Him?
Lord Jesus, we stand in need of Your grace to be able to watch with You. Our human nature keeps us focused on our own needs and that You are watching over us. Help us grow and mature so that we can watch with You. In Your precious name we pray, Amen.
