“We would see Jesus.” – John 12: V21
Beloved, people of this world are always crying, “who will show us any good?” They seek satisfaction in earthly comforts, enjoyments, and riches. But the quickened sinner knows of only one good. “O that I knew where I might find HIM – JESUS!”. When he is truly awakened to feel his guilt, if you should give him diamonds, he would say, “Take it away: I want to find Jesus.”
It is a blessed thing for a man, when he has brought his desires into focus to be focusing on Christ. Even though, he has fifty different desires, but now all his desires are brought into one channel, channelling all though Christ. His heart then becomes like a river of pure water, running swiftly to fertilize the fields. Happy is he who hath one desire, if that one desire is set on Christ. It is a blessed sign of divine Grace.
Such a man will never be content with mere ordinances. He will say, “I want Christ; I must have Him—mere ordinances are of no use to me; I want Himself; do not offer me anything else; everything else is empty, give me Jesus, or I die. Jesus is my soul’s desire. I want Jesus. O that I would see Jesus!”
With Jesus as your desire, then you are not far from the kingdom of Heaven. “I would give all I have to be washed by the blood of Jesus”. I would give up everything I have and hope for, if I might but feel, that I have an interest in Christ”? Then, despite all thy fears, I will then be of good cheer, for I know that the Lord loveth me, and I will rejoice in the liberty wherewith Christ makes men free. Amen!
JESUS LOVES YOU. Start your day with Jesus. Beloved, have a blessed day.
