Jesus turned to those following Him and asked, “What are you seeking?” And they asked, where are you staying? And Jesus replied, Come and see” (John 1:38-39).
What are you seeking from Jesus? “Seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near” (Isaiah 55:6, NKJV). For, when we seek Him with all our hearts we will find Him (Jeremiah 29:13).
What are you looking for? Is your soul hungry and thirsty? Come and see Jesus who is the Bread of Life and the Living Water. “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’”(John 6:35, John 7:38, ESV)
Do you need to know the way? Come and see the One who is The Way, the Truth, and the Life. “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6, ESV).
Are you seeking peace? Come and see the One who gives peace and Who is peace. Jesus invites, “Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.” (John 14:27, NASB).
Are you desperate for light? Come and see the One who is light. Jesus is the light of the world. Whoever follows Him will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life. (John 8:12)
Are you longing for comfort? Come to God and His Son, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of sympathy (pity and mercy) and the God [Who is the Source] of every comfort (consolation and encouragement), Who comforts (consoles and encourages) us in every trouble (calamity and affliction), so that we may also be able to comfort (console and encourage) those who are in any kind of trouble or distress, with the comfort (consolation and encouragement) with which we ourselves are comforted (consoled and encouraged) by God” (2 Corinthians 1:3-4, AMPC).
Whatever you are seeking, whatever you are looking for, you will find in God and His Son, Jesus Christ. “Ask and keep on asking and it will be given to you; seek and keep on seeking and you will find; knock and keep on knocking and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who keeps on asking receives, and he who keeps on seeking finds, and to him who keeps on knocking, it will be opened” (Matthew 7:7-8, AMP).
“Let all who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; let those who love Your salvation continually say, ‘God is great!’” (Psalm 70:4, HCSB). “Seek and deeply long for the Lord and His strength [His power, His might]; seek and deeply long for His face and His presence continually.” (Psalm 105:4, AMP).
