The next day John was there again with two of his disciples. When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, "Look, the Lamb of God!"
When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus. Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, "What do you want?"
They said, "Rabbi" (which means Teacher), "where are you staying?"
"Come," he replied, "and you will see."
So they went and saw where he was staying, and spent that day with him. It was about the tenth hour. (John 1:35-39)
Put yourself in the shoes of one of those disciples of John the Baptist. In the middle of town, the hustle and bustle of the marketplace, John says, "look".
What do you see? There is nothing special about the way He looks. But you follow.
He asks, "What do you want?"
What do I see in Jesus that catches my attention today?
What do I want?
I see peace in the time of turmoil. Shelter in the storm. A refuge and strength; an ever present help in trouble.
I am drawn to Him like a moth to the flame; I cannot help but believe.
Now more than ever, as Reformed, I understand that there is nothing in me that would make me search out Him. The power, the sovereignty, the sacrifice all catch my attention.
That HE LOVES ME - not because of what I am, but because of who HE is.
I want...to know Him better.
