Summary

People Jesus spent time with decoded: Our new podcast episode explores Mark 10:13-16 and our need for him.

Introduction

Have you ever got to the point where you say to yourself, I need Jesus? Often, that moment comes when we’ve reached the end of our own resources. But in Mark 10:13-16, we discover a profound lesson from the people Jesus spent time with. Jesus interacted with those who recognised their need for him, whether they were in crisis or not.

People Jesus Spent Time With: Those Who Needed Him

In this passage, people brought their children to Jesus, desiring his blessings. The disciples initially viewed this as an interruption. However, Jesus, ever the compassionate teacher, responded with a valuable insight. He said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children.”

What stands out here is that the children, though young and innocent, recognised their need for Jesus. They approached him with a simple trust, understanding that he held something special. This mirrors a broader theme in Jesus’s ministry; he often spent time with those who acknowledged their need for him, including tax collectors and blatant sinners.

People Jesus Spent Time With: Transformed

Recognising our need for Jesus is the first step towards a transformative and intimate relationship with him. Just as the children were unafraid to come to Jesus, we too should be unreserved in approaching him with our joys, sorrows, hopes, and fears. He welcomes us with open arms.

So, as you go about your day, take a moment to reflect on your relationship with Jesus. Are you approaching him with the humility and trust of a child who recognises their need for him? It’s a beautiful reminder that Jesus is ever-ready to embrace us and guide us along the path to his kingdom. We can be people Jesus spent time with.

In acknowledging our need for him, we open the door to his grace and blessings, just as the children in Mark 10:13-16 did.

Reflection Question

Are we, like those children, willing to humbly acknowledge our need for Jesus in our lives? Do we approach him with the same childlike trust and openness, recognising that he holds something extraordinary?
