WOYWW: What are You Looking For?

"What are you looking for?" John 1:38

John the Baptist was quite notorious. He was known for being passionate and people would flock to him to listen and be baptized. He had many followers, but the minute Jesus appeared, he pointed his followers to Jesus. "Look!" John said, "There is the lamb of God!" 

One day, two of John's followers went after Jesus. He asked them, "What are you looking for?" They did not answer him, but instead asked a question:  "Rabbi, where do you stay?" "Come and see," he answered. Sometimes we cannot articulate what we are looking for. All we know is we need answers. 

Perhaps that was the case for the two who started following Jesus, and eventually ended up staying with him that day. One of them was Andrew, Peter's brother, known in the Orthodox tradition as Prōtoklētos or the First-Called. 

Tradition has it that Saint Andrew was martyred by crucifixion. I think Andrew found what he was looking for and was willing to die for it, like most of the early Christians. How about us? Have we found what we are looking for? Do we realize that each of us is called to make the most important decision of our life? The decision to come and see and follow Jesus will impact our life here and now, and after our death. 

Lord, like Saint Andrew, may I not hesitate in following You, and seeing the life You want to offer me.

  13. Wonderful drawing and illustration. Thank you for linking with us at Word Art Wednesday. Our current challenge is still ongoing and we would love to have you participate again. I would like to share this passage from the Bible coming from Hebrews 6:11-12 which says, "We want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, so that what you hope for may be fully realized. We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised." Have a blessed week.
