Chase. Jesus did not operate by the “seat of his pants”, He was always intentional.

I am.” I  sure most of us have played the game “hide and seek.” I always like to hide because I could be clever in hiding but I quickly got bored looking for someone. Occasionally, Jesus would leave the crowds but that was to reflect and rest. It was never to hide-you never had to look very hard to find Him. All you had to do was look for the dust that a few demons made as they were exiting someone Jesus was having a conversation with. Often everyone’s attention was drawn to a hill or lake where Jesus just healed someone and the applause and yelling was so loud you had to go check it out-but you knew Jesus was in the house or on the hill.

Jesus lived with intentionality. He got up just like you and I but everything changed in a flash because He was talking with the Father about the day-where He should go and who He should talk with. He knew His conversations would alter someone’s vocation or scare the spank out of them but one way or another, they would not be the same. There were times He knew his match would light the dynamite in someone and they would put a contract on Him to eliminate the hard stuff He was talking about.

In Matthew 4:18 &19 Jesus challenged these guys to think about a new job. He aroused Matthew’s curiosity to such a place where he stopped focusing on the extra money he was going to get for that Mediterranean villa. Look at Matthew 9:9,

And then Zach was perched in a tree so he could see Jesus when he walked by. They had dinner together that night. Luke 19:1-6. And there were times that the mood of some of the listeners was so filled with hatred, that you wondered why Jesus was there. He never missed a beat-He always knew where He was going and who would be in the crowd. Matthew 12:22-37.

Jesus lived with intentionality. How does your day start? What would living with intentionality look like for you? It really depends on if your purpose is the same as Jesus’.
