On January 15, Pastor Katy preaches on John 1:35-42.
The first words uttered by Jesus in the Gospel of John are a question to some of John’s stray disciples whom Jesus discovered following him one day. “What are you looking for?” It is a profound question for not only the disciples, but also for us as we too seek to follow Jesus. What is it that you are truly looking for when you come to church, when you pray, when you find yourself trying to match the footsteps of Jesus with your own? The disciples appear to not really have an answer as they respond to Jesus’ question by asking another question, to which Jesus extends an invitation to us all to simply come and see.
