See for Yourself!
He said to them, “Come and see.”
God knows whether we mean business. He knows who the true seekers are. To those who are really seeking Him, He reveals Himself. He says, “Come and see.” And to those who are playing silly religious games, He utters not a single word.
You might be asking yourself, Why am I here? Why is it that when I pray, I don’t seem to hear anything from heaven? Why is it when I sing God’s praises, it just seems like there is an icy silence, a wall that separates me?
But what is your motive? What are you doing it for? What do you seek? If your motives are right, then He says to you, “Come and see.”
“What are you seeking?” Jesus asked Andrew and John when He noticed they were trailing Him (see John 1:42). In other words, “What are you looking for?” They probably felt a little uncomfortable.
“Where do you live?” they asked.
Jesus said, “Come and see.” Now we don’t know where Jesus was living at this time, but we do know from other passages of Scripture that He had no home to speak of. So Jesus was speaking to them on a deeper level. He was not just saying, “Come and see where I rest,” but, “Come and see who I am. Come and see what I am all about.”
And they saw indeed. Through his years with Jesus, John saw so many things as he had the privilege of personally walking and talking with the Lord for three years. And then of course, God gave John a great vision that became what we know as the Book of Revelation. Oh, he saw! Jesus said, “Come and see,” and John saw so much.
Jesus is saying to you today, “Come on! Come see for yourself. Come investigate for yourself.” You will see so much too.
