Day Two: Look With Our Eyes Opened!

John 1:29 – The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!

“Look”—this word is more than simply saying: Hey, look at that interesting thing—or check this out!  When John says “look”, he is saying “open your eyes people! Wake up if you have been sleeping, and come to full attention! Stop looking or paying attention, or being distracted by anything or anyone else! For this is what you were looking for and need to see—the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

Today, what are you and I distracted by?  What are we thinking about, concerned about, distraught about? Let’s stop and LOOK!  Let’s open our eyes, and come to full attention because this Jesus that we have come to worship—is the Lamb of God.  All the needs that we have, all of the questions that we have, all the burden that we carry, they are fully found in Christ.  In Christ what we find is not a temporary nor a partial solution, but the full and the only solution and the resolution to our lives.

Prayer: “O God, whose blessed Son made himself known to his disciples in the breaking of bread: Open the eyes of our faith, that we may behold him in all his redeeming work; who lives and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.” [Book of Common Prayer]

Today, worship with the song, Yours by Elevation Worship.
