Devotional & Reflection
John 1:46-50: Come And See
Do we really believe in Jesus and that Jesus is Lord over everything? Are we daring enough of this fact and have the faith to invite others to see Jesus - in us and in our churches? Are we living a life worthy in the manner of the calling the Lord has summoned us? Dare we invite people to "come and see" us in order that they can come and see Jesus in us.
Dare we invite people to "come and see" our interest groups, our small groups and our church? When visitors come - do they see love rather than resentment; crediting others rather than crediting ourselves; praising others rather than politicking; giving glory to God rather than directing attention to self; looking at the interest of others rather than hoarding selfish ambition; encouragement rather than self-righteousness; lording over others rather than serving others; and humility rather than talking down to people and of other people?
When visitors come, can we say confidently to them that, "you shall see greater things than that?" "You shall see heaven open!"
Is there God's presence, his peace, his shalom - a state of bliss and blessing, his power for healing?
In short, when visitors come, do they see Jesus?
