2013-03-23 - Looking for Jesus
"When it was almost time for the Jewish Passover, many went up from the country to Jerusalem for their ceremonial cleansing before the Passover. They kept looking for Jesus, and as they stood in the temple area they asked one another, 'What do you think? Isn't he coming to the Feast at all?'"--John 11:55-56 (NIV)
The people were looking for Jesus. They had seen and heard of His many miracles. Jesus had even raised a man (Lazarus) from the dead. They wanted to see and hear Jesus. What would He do or say next? They probably had many questions for Jesus.
Today, people are looking for meaning in their busy, hectic lives. They are searching for answers to their many questions. Where can they turn? Jesus said, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28, NIV)
Are you looking for Jesus?
