Daily Devotional November 27 - What Seek Ye?

"Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples; And looking upon Jesus as He walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God! And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, what seek ye?..." John 1:35-38a

What seek ye?

  • What is it that you are really after when it comes to Jesus and the whole Christian thing?
  • Have you taken time to evaluate what it is that causes even the least hunger after a Christ-like life/lifestyle?
  • Do you have an urging to go further and find out more and dig deeper and follow closer and listen more attentively and prayer with more realism?
  • Are you struggling with part of your mind believing and part unbelieving?
  • What is your real, internal motivation for being a Christian?
  • Are you a religious person but you have never had a close encounter with Jesus?
  • Do you believe what you have been told or have you searched the scriptures for yourself?

What seek ye?

  • Are you hoping that you will find a good Christian man or woman at church to marry?
  • Are you OK with a little church and a little bar hopping, a little Jesus and a little stimulating entertainment?
  • Do you want Jesus to come and visit your household tonight?
  • Are you in league with those who think you should leave Jesus at home or in church, but not to mention Him at work or when visiting certain family members or friends or maybe if you are a politician, not to mention that you are a Christian because it could raise up questions about your ability or your ability to stay unbiased?

What seek ye?

  • Is it that you want God to change you and make you like Jesus?
  • Is it that you want to quit living a lie and start living a life/lifestyle under the guidance of the Holy Spirit?
  • Is it that you want to enter into the Holy of Holies and find the gems of truth that are available for you?
  • Is it that you want to be able to sit with Jesus and lay your burdens down and let Him have His way with you for a season?
  • Is it that you have been trodding through life like it is a drudgery and you want Jesus to make you paths straight, ease your burden and lighten your load?
  • Is it that you have been playing church for decades and now you want to dive in with both feet and be drenched with the living water of life?
  • Is it that you are confused and you really want to know the truth, but there are so many differing opinions that you can't make up your mind?
  • Are you hungry for more of God's interference in your life?
  • Are you thirsty for a taste of the goodness of God?
  • Are you starving for something that makes you want to live again?

What seek ye?
