Saying When I Get Around to It, Jesus

Jesus said unto her, I am the Resurrection, and the Life: he that believeth in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in Me shall never die.  Believest thou this? She saith unto Him, Yea, Lord: I believe that Thou art the Christ, the Son of God, which should come into the world.  And when she had so said, she went her way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, the Master is come, and calleth for thee.  As soon as she heard that, she arose quickly, and came unto Him.  John, Chapter 11, verses 25-29.

This passage reminds me of asking kids to come do something and you hear, “In a minute,” “During the commercial,” or “When I get around to it.”  Actually, I have been guilty of saying the exact same things myself.  As Christians, do we jump up and respond when we feel Jesus is calling us to do something or do we tell Him, “When I get around to it”?

Since this is how I apply this Bible passage to my life, it doesn't necessarily reflect the whole meaning of the passage.

This is a connection I've made from this Bible passage. Please share your connections.
