And with many such parables He spoke the word to them as they were able to hear it. But without a parable He did not speak to them. And when they were alone, He explained all things to His disciples. (Mark 4:33-34 NKJV, emphasis mine)
Jesus wants to get us alone, without distraction — a way from the TV and Facebook, away from our phones and friends, even away from our church duties and families. It is when we are simply with Him that He has our full attention. Then He will explain to us what we do not understand.
Do you have plans to be with Him, just Him today?
I have an appointment with Him most mornings..I look forward to it… (:
