What do you seek?

John 1:35-38 35 Again, the next day, John stood with two of his disciples. 36 And looking at Jesus as He walked, he said, "Behold the Lamb of God!" 37 The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. 38 Then Jesus turned, and seeing them following, said to them, "What do you seek?" They said to Him, "Rabbi" (which is to say, when translated, Teacher), "where are You staying?"

What do we seek when looking for the Christ? Are we curious, bored? Do we want to hear some words of wisdom and then walk away so that we continue our lives? Do we seek a fairy tale? A teacher? A person of history that has little to do with this modern world?

It is Christ who asks what do you seek? It is the all knowing God ,,,, he asks a question that he knows the answer to.... because he knows every thought we have... every motivation, every wish, every desire.

We should seek Him as our Savior, Teacher and the source of life. We should seek Him so that we may become like Him.

Who do say that Jesus is?

The Lamb Of God

John 1:29  The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away [1] the sin of the world.

This is why Jesus came. This is the Truth forever and evermore. That Christ, the Messiah, The Word, the Son of God came to be a sacrifice for fallen man so that He could take away the sin of the world.

Only perfect God can take away the sin of the world. This was set before the creation of the earth, and everything in the Old Testament pointed to Him and his sacrifice.

The blood of the passover lamb that saved Israel in Egypt cries to The Lamb that saves mankind from their sin.

And in Him we are saved, if we believe He is ...Our Sin is taken away... born by Him who knew no sin.
