(För svenska se – “Vi vill se Jesus”, som publicerats tidigare på bloggen).
“Now there were some Greeks among those who went up to worship at the feast. They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida of Galilee, and asked him, “Sir, we want to see Jesus.” John 12:20-21
The prayer from the hearts of men is the same today: “We want to see Jesus.”
When you see Jesus as He really is, something happens in your heart. A longing to want to follow and get to know Him appears.
To see Jesus and be with Him
You see Jesus in the Bible and when you are saved, He lives in your heart. Then you can know that Jesus dwells in you. This is the secret of Christianity – “Christ in you” Col.1: 27
The Bible reveals Jesus and we can have fellowship with Him. But sometimes it can happen that it is over emphasis on the teachings about Jesus and you realize that your fellowship with the person, Jesus, have stagnated.
“You search the Scriptures, because you think in them you have eternal life. These are they who bear witness of Me. Yet you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.” John 5:39-40
The solution is to see Jesus in the Bible and to come to Jesus again and again, to communicate with Him.
Come to Jesus today
True stories from the past and nowadays are countless, of what happens when persons come to Jesus. He is reality itself. He goes through closed doors and cultural, religious and social barriers to meet a human heart that is approaching Him. Jesus forgives, establishes, heals and liberates. He leads us on the right paths. There is no one in the world like Him. Come to Jesus today, maybe it’s for the first time or as many times before. Jesus says, “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavily burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you, and learn from Me. For I am meek and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden is light.” Matt. 11:28-30
God bless you.
