The Way


May your daily search be for peace, love and justice.

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, isn’t it?

What are you looking for?

Jesus is our great teacher in life.

He said that he is “the way and the truth and the life” (John 14:6).

Jesus simply asks us to “come, and you will see.”

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.

Read in the gospels what Jesus said and did…and then follow his example.

Life is not about attaining some future heavenly reward…but about being compassionately present to each moment of becoming more and more like Christ.
