Jesus Went Off to Pray

Luke 6:11 records that the religious leaders of the day were so “filled with rage” at Jesus that they “discussed together what they might do to Jesus” (NASB). Isn’t it interesting that the next verse says, “It was at this time that He went off to the mountain to pray. . . .” Our first instinct is often to do something, to act, when we face opposition. Jesus’ first recorded response was to pray. What a lesson for us all! When adversity hits us in the face, our first response can and should be Jesus’ first response: to talk to God. God is the One who will work, even in adversity!
