One v Everyone
Mark 1: 35-39 “Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. 36 Simon and his companions went to look for him, 37 and when they found him, they exclaimed: “Everyone is looking for you!” 38 Jesus replied, “Let us go somewhere else—to the nearby villages—so I can preach there also. That is why I have come.” 39 So he travelled throughout Galilee, preaching in their synagogues and driving out demons.”
Everyone was still asleep, but the One was drawing Him.
Everyone filled the house, soon it would be noisy again, but the desire for quietness with the One motivated Him to leave it.
At first light everyone wanted Him. The 4 disciples wanted questions answering, some more teaching, others knocked at the door to say thanks for healing them the day before, still more came wanting their own healing and deliverance. Everyone was running on adrenalin and they wanted Him to copy them, this would be a busy day ahead. But after praying to the One He understood His purpose was to move on, He knew why He had come, the One told Him that not the everyone, they wanted Him to stay, but the One told Him to go.
Today the battle has already begun between everyone and the One. Who will you submit to?
