And he looked at Jesus as he walked by and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God!” The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus.
Have you ever placed yourself in the shoes of the apostles? Let’s say you’re at work or school or just out getting coffee with a friend, and a random guy comes up to you–someone you have never met–and tells you to follow. I am convinced that 99% of people would look at that person as if they were crazy and just continue in whatever they were doing before. This is how we know there was something different about the presence of Jesus. Something special. When people experienced Him for even a moment, they were drawn in. He was to be trusted, loved, and sought after. He was to be followed. Spend some time in His presence today. Allow the Scriptures to reintroduce you to His goodness, majesty, and sovereignty. For we know that when we experience His presence, we experience something unlike anything in this world can ever offer. Sit with Him today, Christian. Follow Him. Over and over again.
Jesus, I love the midst of your presence. I love sitting with you, reading your word, listening to your heard, and sharing with you mine. Help us follow you today in everything. I love you, Lord.
