Jesus asks his would be followers “What are you seeking?”
A simple yet challenging question. We too are invited to hear the question for us: “What are you seeking?”
There are many things in life we are seeking, but Pastor Rob offers that his and likely our deepest longing is for the reconciliation, righteousness and joy in all things to be restored.
John the Baptist claims this is the work and mission of Jesus when he declares, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.” Beautifully, John does not claim this will happen only in the future in heaven, but acknowledges that Jesus is doing this work now, of making all things new and restoring what was broken and marred by sin.
A reflection on the work of Christ and modern “John the Baptists” who point us toward the one taking away the sin of the world.
