The One Who Invites – What Are You Seeking?

(Begin with 1-2 minutes of silence)

Throughout His ministry, Jesus asked questions that really cut straight to the heart. For example, when two of John the Baptist’s disciples started following Jesus, His first question was, “What are you seeking?”

Their response may not be what you’d expect. They said, “Teacher, where are you staying?” 

John just pointed to Jesus as the Lamb of God and the most pressing question on their mind is about seeing the home in which Jesus was currently residing.  Seems strange, doesn’t it?

Maybe they thought, If He really is the Lamb of God, He’s going to be staying somewhere magnificent. We should go see it! While we don’t really know what they were thinking, we do know that Jesus responded by saying, “Come and see.” 

Jesus’ initial question, as well as His response, is relevant for each and every one of us. Whether you’re new to the faith or have been a Christian for decades, we can all wrestle with the question – What are you seeking? And no matter what your answer is to that question, Jesus follows with a simple invitation. OK…come and see.

READING & JOURNALING:

     JOHN 1:35-50

If Jesus were in the room with you at this moment and He asked you, “What are you seeking?” How would you respond?

PRAYER:

Heavenly Father, I don’t always know exactly what it is I’m seeking. But whatever it may be, I recognize that I will only discover what it is I’m actually seeking by regularly following You. Continue to reveal the purpose You have for my life as I follow You this day. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
