BIBLE VERSE OF THE DAY: When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus. Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, “What do you want?” They said, “Rabbi” (which means “Teacher”), “where are you staying?” “Come,” he replied, “and you will see.” – John 1:37-39

Meeting Jesus By Scott Patty

Jesus came to be met.

So many people don’t realize this. To them, Jesus is a figure in history, long dead and irrelevant, or the inspiration for discontent cultural revolutionaries, or the leader of morally uptight Americans. But a person to be met and known?

In the opening chapter of John’s Gospel, we learn of the coming of Jesus. Grand statements about him are made in this chapter. The Word was in the beginning. The Word was with God from eternity. The Word was God. Jesus is this Word, which became a man and lived among us. Jesus is God and man in one person.

John 1 goes on to tell us that Jesus met people, and people actually met him. It tells us that we, too, can meet him.

How can we meet a man who lived two thousand years ago? Jesus is alive and he relates to us by his Spirit. He has given us information about himself in the Bible. He still speaks to us through the Bible. He gave us minds that can think, desires that lead to decisions, and bodies that can be used for service. Put all of this together, and we see how we can meet Jesus.

Meeting Jesus starts when he, by his Spirit, speaks to us from his Word. We then understand the words about Jesus, believe in him, decide to follow him, and make it our mission to serve him. Meeting Jesus happens because Jesus introduces himself to us, and we respond to him in faith.

Our lives should be saturated with this one, overarching goal: to meet Jesus. He has already introduced himself to you in his Word. I hope you will continue to meet him there.
