Sir, we would see Jesus!

John 12:21

It is significant that Greeks as Gentiles were present at the last Passover of the Lord Jesus. They were no longer interested in their mythology and religion. They knew that the Lord Jesus was different than their gods. They did not come to discuss or quarrel with Him. They wanted to see Him. We do not know about the conversation that these people had with the Lord Jesus, but we know that they came, because they wanted to see Him! The children of today are like those Greeks; they want to see the Lord Jesus, too. Do they see Him in us?

How different people saw the Lord Jesus?

John the Baptist saw the Lord Jesus as the sin bearer of the world! ‘The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.’ (John 1:29; Heb. 10:10-12)

The Apostle Peter saw the Lord Jesus as the only means of eternal life! ‘Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.’ (John 6: 68)

The thief on the cross saw the Lord Jesus as the Saviour who knew no sin! ,And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss.’ (Luke 23:41)

The Roman soldier saw the Lord Jesus as the Son of God! ‘Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.’ (Matt. 27:54)

The Apostle John saw the Lord as the Supreme Lord! ‘And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last.’ (Rev. 1:17)

Stephen saw the Lord Jesus as the One welcomes home! ‘And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God. (Acts 7:56)

Those people had a privilege of seeing the Lord Jesus! What about the people who live with us? They want to see the Lord Jesus! What about the new generation? Children need to see the Lord Jesus. It is not enough to tell them about the Lord Jesus. They must see Him!

How do we see the Lord Jesus? The way we see Him will determine whether we go to heaven or not. The way we see Him will determine how we show Him to others who have never seen Him. We cannot show Him without seeing Him first. Some see Him as a great man. Others see Him as a great prophet. And others see Him only as an example to follow.

He is the only sin bearer of the world! He is the only means of eternal life! He is the Saviour who knew no sin! He is the Son of God! He is the Supreme Lord! He is the One who welcomes us home!

'A job is at your choice; a ministry is at Christ's call. In a job you expect to receive; in a ministry you expect to give. In a job you give something to get something; in a ministry you return something that has already been given to you. A job depends on your abilities; a ministry depends on your availability to God. A job done well brings you praise; a ministry done well brings honour to Christ.'

This ministry is to bring honour to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!
