Reflections… a Scripture verse and inspiration for daily living [3/4]

Passage: John 7:25-36
Verse: John 7:36 (NIV 2011)
What did he mean when he said, ‘You will look for me, but you will not find me,’ and ‘Where I am, you cannot come’?”

In this passage, Jesus was speaking to a group of Jews.  However, most of these Jews were not His friends.  Actually, many sought to kill Him because of His heavenly claims.  Many knew about Jesus’ earthy family and where Jesus was physically from, but they did not know or understand who had sent Jesus to them or where Jesus would go to after His earthy ministry was over.  Jesus knew His earthly fate and that He would soon be returning to the Father.  We know, as believers, that we will follow Christ to our heavenly home, but unbelievers will not have the same fate.  They cannot go where Jesus goes.  They will not know where to look or where to find Him.  May we, as believers, appreciate our position in Christ.  May we faithfully follow Him now and into eternity.  May we always seek to share the reasons for our faith in the One who saves us so that others might also be saved.  (inspired by Reflecting God – Devotions for Holy Living, WordAction Publishing Company)
