What are YOU seeking?
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
Jesus is departing, after meeting his cousin John and being baptized by him. He notices two disciples following Him. Jesus turns around and asks: What are you seeking?” (John 1:38) KJV. It is a question meant for all men of every time and in all places and situations.
The reply given by Jesus—“Come, and you will see”—is, like so many of His statements, loaded with multiple meanings on different levels. On the material level, the disciples did follow and see where He dwelt. But on a deeper, spiritual level, they entered into a relationship—Teacher and disciples—that eventually revealed to them a shocking truth: Jesus is the Word, who “was with God” and who “is God” before the beginning of creation (John 1:1-3). The One who now dwelt among men was one with the Father, and had been sent to call men to Himself, to seek and to save.
