“He first found his own brother Simon and said to him, ‘We have found the Messiah’ (which means Christ)” -(John 1:41)
Andrew told his brother this when he met Jesus and they both stopped what they were doing and began following Him.
Did these disciples really expect to be the ones to see Jesus first? Were they surprised at the find, or did they always have faith that He would show?
They had sought Him, looked around, prayed for Him to come perhaps, turned over stones, followed leads, investigated rumors, hoped in gossip, examined their own hearts.
I wonder if they imagined that He would be so ordinary, found under as it happened. How did they recognize Him? What gave the fisherman the confidence to make such a statement – “We have found the Messiah”?
Their joy overflowed even as they questioned Him, seeking to prove Him. They knew what they had found, a costly pearl, a mustard seed.
But are we always look for Jesus? Do we wait for Him to find us? We usually don’t think that we can be the One to find Him.
May each day fill us with an urge of finding the Messiah. May we be filled with the same anticipation of the Lord showing up. Lord, forgive us for not searching for You.
