Come and See

John 1:38-39
Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them, “What are you looking for?” They said to him, “Rabbi” (which translated means Teacher), “where are you staying?” He said to them, “Come, and you will see.”

Put yourself in this scenario. You meet Jesus and He asks you, “What are you looking for?” Interesting question. What are you looking for? Jesus is our great teacher in life. He simply asks us to “come” and follow Him. That will require letting go of what our egos are urging us to do…listening to God’s silent voice in our hearts…and then taking a step in the direction we think God is calling us. Life is not about some future destination…but about being present to each moment of the journey in becoming more and more like Christ. Have you heard this quote? “How you get there determines where you will finally arrive.”

Suggested song of the day – “I Want to Follow You” on the Listen to Your Heart album.
