Then Jesus turned, and seeing them following said to them, “what do you seek?”
What an interesting question. Not, “who are you looking for?” or “do you wish to follow Me?” but “what do you seek?” They sought “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (1:29, 1:36).
These were disciples of John, who came preaching a baptism of repentance. One who came in preparation for the Savior (1:23). What did they seek while listening to and following John? They sought THIS Savior. The One of whom John spoke. They genuinely sought truth (Matt. 5:8).
What an interesting question to ask people: “What do you seek?” What are you really looking for in this life? No one can come to the Father unless He draws Him (John 6:65). Are we asking the right question when we evangelize or are we trying to get through memorized presentation? Like a physician, can we correctly diagnose and help the patient see the seriousness of their disease or are we just telling people about the cure when they don’t even know they are sick? What do you seek?
Father, help me have compassion that leads to passion. Give me a desire to not only love people, but recognize where they are spiritually. Help me give them the truth of scripture (John 14:6).
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
