Christian devotions in the Daily-Message

Rabbi where dwellest Thou? Come and see!

“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? They said unto Him, Rabbi (which is to say, being interpreted, Master), where dwellest Thou? He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where He dwelt, and abode with Him that day: for it was about the tenth hour. One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. He first findeth His own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ. And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, “Thou art Simon the son of Jona: “thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.”

John 1:35-42

I would like to invite you today to cast your eyes upon Jesus and, whilst remaining impartial and unbiased, to ask, like the disciples of John the Baptist: “Rabbi, where dwellest Thou?” “Come and see!” - was His invitation to the disciples, and these words apply also to us. In the Gospel of John we find the first words of Jesus: Come and see the first words which He spoke to us. I want to appeal to you to accept Jesus' invitation and follow Him. I want to encourage each and every one of you to take an “Exploration voyage” through the world of the Gospel. The Gospel of Mark is the shortest report on Jesus' life and, on these grounds, is maybe a good entrance into the words and deeds of Jesus.

It should be the objective of every Christian to encounter Jesus as unbiased as possible. I think, if the apostles had not spent three years getting to know Jesus and sharing everything with Him, they would definitely not have been such brave witnesses to His resurrection. Who will be witnesses to Jesus' resurrection today, if not us Christians? I wish to see many, many Christians who are brave and zealous with regard to the resurrection and message of Jesus.
