Alone With Jesus

Song of Solomon 2:10: My beloved spake, and said unto me, Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.

This is Jesus invitation to each of us. We need as much time alone with Him as we can get. Even as Jesus Himself spent much time alone with His Father. If He thrived on that how much more will we? When we spend enough time alone with Him we will be unsullied by the crowd.

Matthew 6:6: But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.

Acts 4:13: Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.

John 8:9b: . . . Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

F. Whitfield:

Alone with Jesus! What a sweet and holy spot! What a blessed refuge to which the soul may betake itself from the charges of Satan, the accusations of the world, and the sorrows of life! Sweet spot for the heart to unfold itself to tell its hidden tale in the ear of infinite love, tenderness and compassion!

Alone with Jesus! How different a front would Christianity present to the world if the Lord*s people were oftener there! What humility, and gentleness, and love, would characterize all their dealings! What holiness stamped on the very brow, that all might read! What few judgments passed on others, how many more on ourselves! What calmness and resignation and joyful submission to all the Lord*s dealings!

Be much alone with Jesus! Then will the passage to glory be one of sunshine, whether it be through the portals of the grave or through the clouds of heaven.
