Come now; let us leave.


There comes a point in all of our lives when we should stop talking and act. In today’s post, we see Jesus demonstrate that point. After He had washed their feet and shared with the disciples that He was soon to leave them to return to the Father’s house but only after atoning for man’s sin, Jesus tells His disciples “Come now; let us leave.”

Let’s hear the Word of the Lord.

John 14

28 “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. 29 I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe. 30 I will not say much more to you, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold over me, 31 but he comes so that the world may learn that I love the Father and do exactly what my Father has commanded me. Come now; let us leave.”

Jesus models obedience to us. He told the disciples what was going to happen before it did, so that they would believe. He shared with them that the devil did not influence or make Him give His life, but He laid it down on His own out of obedience to God. When Jesus says “Come now; let us leave“, He is no longer talking but taking action.
There has been something that God has been telling you about. Today, He is saying “Come now; let us leave” in efforts to get you moving toward doing that which He has been talking to you about. I don’t have to know what it is. You know, and God knows. Will you demonstrate obedience like Christ? Will you take action now that the Almighty God has shown you what you need to do? Let Jesus’ Word continue to speak to you – Come now; let us leave.
