Stop Making Excuses and Start Making Time for Jesus


We are good at making excuses and filling up our time with everything other than what is most important. Our “To Do” list is a mile long and we collapse at night weary because everything was not completed. We live our life as if being happy is what life is all about. What are we thinking? What lies are we buying into? We have got to stop making excuses and start making time for Jesus in our day, in our heart and in our crazy busy life.

We put so many things before Him, don’t we? Let’s be honest. It is just you and me here, no one else can hear us. I am going to ask you some questions and you answer them in your spirit. No exaggerating. No excuses. No dancing around the truth. Okay? Here we go…

·      How much time on average would you say you spend talking with, getting to know and building your relationship with Jesus every day?

·      Where is the first place you go when a crisis arises? Your spouse, your Momma, your best friend, Google or Jesus?

·      Jesus loves you so much He left heaven, lived 33 years on this earth, was persecuted, and suffered a horrendous death. So, because of all He has done for you, are you loving Him in return, sacrificing your selfish ways and living your life for Him?


Ugh! If you are like me, those answers hurt! What are we thinking? What are we doing? We have got to stop making excuses and start making time for Jesus! He is our hope and our salvation. He is our Savior. He is the way, the truth and the life. He has opened the door to the presence of God and eternity with Him.

Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’
— John 14:6

We are just weeks away from Easter. The time we celebrate our risen Savior and what He has done for us. Let’s ponder our answers to the above questions and choose to make some changes. Let’s put Jesus first. Let’s live our life His way. Let’s walk in His truth. Let’s let our life become a reflection of Him. Let’s put Jesus first, ya’ll. Let’s stop making excuses and put Him first.
