The gospel of John is often recommended reading for a new Christian- a great introduction to who Jesus is. This week I found myself needing to read in John – a funny God moment considering I read it prior to knowing it was my “devotion assignment”. I was reminded that Jesus chose me to have a relationship with Him and it is so easy for me to get wrapped up in everything that I am doing for God, but not spend quality time with God. Is my to do list more important than spending time with the One who existed before time began, who came to earth as the “Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world”?  

He saw me, just as He saw Nathanael under the fig tree, and He chose me.  Jesus wants a relationship with you too. He calls to you, just as He called each of His Disciples, “follow me”. Take time today, no matter how busy your schedule, and spend time with Him.
