  Week 4 - DISCIPLINE OF GOD  
 
  Day 6 : Disciplined Life Of Jesus  
 
 

Mark 1:35
Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed.

I believe many of us must be familiar with this passage about Jesus getting up early in the morning to pray. However what convicts me even more is when I read the previous passage (Vs. 29-34) Jesus was a very busy man. It seems that his day use to end very late several times and yet he did not compromise on his time with God. He knew when and where he can pray without being disturbed and distracted.

Mark 1:36-38
36 Simon and his companions went to look for him,
37 and when they found him, they exclaimed: “Everyone is looking for you!”
38 Jesus replied, “Let us go somewhere else—to the nearby villages—so I can preach there also. That is why I have come.”


Being disciplined involves knowing your priorities. For Jesus his time with God was his priority. And his mission to seek and save the lost was his focus. Though he performed many miracles and healed many from their sicknesses he never lost his focus.

Mark 3:7,13
7 Jesus withdrew with his disciples to the lake, and a large crowd from Galilee followed.
13 Jesus went up on a mountainside and called to him those he wanted, and they came to him


Jesus was leading a group of disciples. He knew that he had to make time if he wants to accomplish something with the group he was leading. Not just in the above passage but many times in The Bible Jesus had to withdraw from the crowd. He had to go away from his daily routine. Take some time out for what was more important. And the results were breath-taking. The group he led turned the world upside down(Acts17:6).
