[Mark 3:13] Jesus went up on a mountainside and called to Him those He wanted, and they came to Him.
Before we go for Christ, we must come to Him (“Come now therefore, and I will send you” Ex. 3:10). Fellowship with Christ takes precedence over service for Him. Therefore, association comes before representation. “Those who want to keep going in effectiveness must keep coming in devotedness; good speakers for God must be good hearers from God, therefore they must learn to be alone and stand still (I Sam. 9:27).”* Have you learned the importance of spending time alone with God to be taught by Him? How are you creating space every day for that time with Him?
