Seeing Jesus

“Now there were certain Greeks among those who came up to worship at the feast. Then they came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida of Galilee, and asked him, saying, ‘Sir, we wish to see Jesus'” (John 12:20-21).

The spirit of these Greeks who came to worship was commendable. They wanted to see Jesus. So should we.

Old time preachers used to speak of “hiding behind the cross.” In other words, they were seeking to show people Jesus, not displaying their wisdom or eloquence. We who preach and teach today, need to show people Jesus.

In our worship service, whether it is in our singing, praying, or participating in communion, the remarks, and the spirit should show Jesus to those who have come to worship.

Today when we leave our respective places of worship, can others see that we “have been with Jesus”? Do our actions and attitudes show Jesus to a sinful world?

Let us all seek to “see Jesus.” Then show Jesus to others through our worship and our ministry.

—Ken Weliever, The Preacherman
