If you were alive during Jesus’ time on earth, would you have known who He was? Would you have felt something stir in the depths of your soul when you first saw Him? Would you have stopped to listen to Him? Would you have followed Him?
I don’t know if I would have known, I don’t know if I would have truly seen Him, and I don’t know if I would have followed Him.
Wondering about this makes me so sad as I picture the possibility that I might have walked right by our Lord and Savior, our sweet Jesus, without a second glance.
I don’t want to walk by Him. I want to stop and kneel as He passes by me, I want to crawl behind Him and touch the earth that He has just graced with bottom of His beautiful foot and I want to yearn for Him to turn towards me and smile.
For now I want to prepare to truly see Him and know Him when He returns by looking for Him in everyone I see. If I can find Him hidden in everyone I see, then maybe I will be blessed with the opportunity to see Him and know Him in His full and glorious form someday.
Jesus, please help me to look for You and see You in everyone I meet.
