How I crave words like these spoken to Jesus, “Everyone is looking for you” (Mark 1:37).
Those are “fame” words.
And yet, Jesus is fame-shy. He seemed drawn not to the spotlight but from it. Disciples had to search. He wasn’t tweeting. His blog wasn’t updated. His email responses were not immediate. Where they often found him was alone and in desolate places praying (Luke 5:16).
Do I possess the stamina to go unnoticed? Can I handle being over-looked? Do I have a spirituality that equips me to do an unknown thing for God’s glory?
But God remembers us, even if others don’t. Being remembered by Him means we no longer fear being forgotten by the world.
