When you’ve been with Jesus, it’s apparent... And when you’ve not, it is just as noticeable. There is no substitution for being in the presence of Christ. Nothing makes you so bold a witness…Education can make you bold. Training can make you bold. But being in the presence of God can empower you to do your calling, and it’s exhilarating! There are times when we need to rest. That rest we find is in Jesus. This is when He can speak to us and we need to pay attention to what is being said. This is evident in the story of Mary and Martha. When you have been with Jesus, the atmosphere around you will change to the point that people CANNOT deny the power of God working in you. When you're with Jesus the distractions of life and the encumbrances of worry and trouble in serving fade to meaninglessness, as you are filled with the ability to accomplish His purpose!
