On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, "Let us cross over to the other side."
I think sometimes we need to hear the Lord say, "Let us cross over to the other side". Time to get away from the business of all that is going on around us and walk to that place where we can spend it with Him. We must learn to take the time and walk with Him. I think there are several times in the day that He does says just that to us, but we make up excuses of why we can't go with Him. We have to take those times and cross over if we ever plan to grow. When He says "us", He means He wants to be right there with us, He wants to spend time with us. He gives us a personal invitation and we should go every time He calls. Just think of how disappointing it is when you ask somebody to do something with you and they say no. God feels just that way when we say no to Him. Think of how if feels when you do get to spend time with that friend, it is the same when you spend time with Jesus. We can walk away refreshed and feeling good. So take the time to cross over and spend time with the Lord!
