The Great Request
Now there were certain Greeks among those who came up to worship at the feast. 21 Then they came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida of Galilee, and asked him, saying, “Sir, we wish to see Jesus.” 22 Philip came and told Andrew, and in turn Andrew and Philip told Jesus. John 12.20-22
Would they ask me?
And, that is the question that burned into my heart this weekend as I watched online church. The scripture above is very telling. The Greeks went to one of their own, Philip, and said, “We want to see Jesus.” In plain talk, they were asking Philip to take them to Jesus.
Now, if you want to know, see, or do something unusual you would ask someone you believe would be able to deliver the goods, right?
If someone wanted to know Biblical Truth, would they ask me? Have I lived my life, my witness to that end? I pray so.
Just to reiterate my stand, my plumb line, if you will…I say nothing without weighing it by The Word of God. My opinions are not my opinions, they are God’s. If I didn’t – I’d be every which way but loose.
I don’t say things to make someone happy or feel good about themselves – I will search Scripture and see what God has to say about it.
Again, I love how Billy Graham would answer folks who interviewed him, “Do you mean Reverend Graham, that you think so and so is wrong?”
To which he would say, “The Bible says, ………………….”
Truth always wins.
