What Do You Seek?
Jesus asked lots of questions when he was on earth. The earliest recording of Jesus asking questions is in Luke 2 when he was 12 years old. About 18 years later we see Jesus asking a question in John chapter 1. Jesus asked his first disciples what they wanted. "What do you seek?" or "What do you want?" He could have been asking what is it that you want or what is it that you desire?
Do we even know what we desire? I have asked people this question all over the world and it is common for people to respond with peace, hope or joy. Once we identify our desire it is important to find out if we can find that in Jesus. Can Jesus give me peace? Absolutely! Can Jesus give me hope? Absolutely! Can Jesus give me joy? Absolutely! List some of your desires. Can Jesus provide that for you?
Join me in asking what it is that we are seeking. Once we identify those desires let’s practice the presence of God as we find out how Jesus can help satisfy those desires.
“Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” — Eph. 3:20,21
