Jesus turned around to those following Him and asked, “What do you seek?” (John 1:38).
It’s a great question, isn’t it? What are you seeking?
In the life and ministry of Jesus Christ, people came to Jesus for all kinds of reasons. Some were sick and hurting, while others came to find some fault with Jesus. Some were simply curious, while others were hungering for answers and truth. While Jesus was always compassionate and did reach out countless times to help those who were hurting, He always reminded His followers that He was here for one main purpose and that was “to seek and to save that which was lost” (Luke 19:10).
Many walked away from Jesus because He offered them what they needed, not always what they wanted. At one point, He turned around to His disciples (followers) and asked them, “Will you also go away?” One of His closest followers, Peter, answered, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life! We have believed and come to know that You are the Holy One of God” (John 6:68-69).
At the South Macomb Church of Christ, we have come to this same conclusion that Peter reached around 2000 years ago. Jesus is the “Holy One of God,” and only Jesus has “the words of eternal life.”
That is our focus for everything we do and say here. It drives how we worship. It is the framework for how we lead our Bible classes for all ages. It influences how we spend the Lord’s money we have collected on Sundays. It is the foundation for our personal lives and for all of our relationships. Jesus is the Lord and the Savior of all mankind, and we seek His glory. We as individuals and as a congregation live to follow His words as revealed in the Holy Scriptures.
We are well aware that as humans, we all fall short of perfection and do things that hurt our Holy Father in heaven. That is why our trust in not in our works of perfection, but rather in the grace of God that was poured out upon us through the death of Jesus Christ His Son on the cross (Ephesians 2:4-10).
“But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
