Come And See

He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour.
— John 1:39

Come and see.

Those three words have a lot of power when Jesus is involved. 

Maybe you noticed in verse 38, of John 1, that when Jesus asked what they were seeking they changed the subject. Instead of answering Jesus' question, they asked their own, Where dwellest thou?

Jesus in all His patience simply said, Come and See

Jesus invites the same of us today. We can come to Him and get a glimpse of His wisdom, goodness, and character. We can then invite others. When we live lives that glorify God, it makes others curious. When they want to know what is making our lives different, we can say, come and see. 

The psalmist adds another action, 

"O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him." Psalm 34:8

Seeing God always starts with us. He does not force Himself on anyone, but rather invites us to Him. 

Notice that Jesus didn't tell them to come back later. He invites us now. Every minute spent with Jesus is valuable. Not a moment wasted. Don't put off your time with Him today. Come, taste, and see. 

To Ponder:

How can I "see" Jesus today?


Dear Jesus, 

I want to see You today. I come to You. I want to sit at Your feet and see that You are good. Reveal Yourself to me today- through Your Word, nature, and the guidance of Your Spirit. I thank You. Amen
