John 12: We Would Like to See Jesus

For Good Friday, I wanted to share an excerpt from my upcoming devotional work Thirst No More on John 12:21, the chapter I have handwritten today.

The religious leaders sought to kill Jesus; seekers sought to see Jesus. Some of the Greeks who had traveled to Jerusalem for the Passover desired to meet with the One many were calling the Messiah. But how would they find Him? These men found Jesus through His followers. Philip and Andrew were the men responsible for connecting these inquirers with Christ.

Many continue to seek Christ; their problem is finding Him. God has chosen us as those who can connect others to Him. We know the way to the Master; part of our work is to connect others to Him. He does the conversion; we do the connection. Let us pray and pursue bringing others who say, “We would like to see Jesus.”
