DAY 73 - Why only Peter, John and James?

Today’s Reading: Luke 8

(Please read Luke 8: 1 – 56 and listen to what the Lord Jesus Christ would like to tell you before reading my Spiritual Journal below. If you would like to learn a simple and good way of Daily Devotion method please read my “Count Down 5” from this blog. You may click this link directly for the method: Subject Shifting Devotion.pdf . (You may begin with a song to praise the Lord and complete you devotion by singing another praise song.)
Please click the links below to Luke 8:

When Jesus arrived at the house of Jairus, he did not let anyone go in with him except Peter, John and James, and the child’s father and mother. Luke 8: 51

Jesus led me to a question after reading Luke 8 today: “Why had Jesus brought only Peter, John and James and not the others into the house of Jairus? Why could not the other nine apostles get in? The reasons may be:
1. Jesus used most of the time to train only those three apostles.
2. Other nine apostles were not ready to witness that miracle and only those who were ready could receive.

So, what I have received is:
1. Who will be my Peter, John and James that I will spend most of the time with as my apprentices?
2. Don’t press on those who are not ready to receive the things they are not ready to receive.

Dear Lord Jesus,

Help me to be able to use my time wisely to train apprentices in your way. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
