“Come, see a man who told me everything I ever did. Could this be the Messiah?” (John 4:29)
A famous call to action with the perfect ending.
Come. See…a man…who told…me…everything…I…ever…did.
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)
Our encounter with Jesus is the starting point to draw interest from anyone to come and see Jesus. They don’t have to go far to see him because “what Jesus has done with you” should serve them testimony. Coming to you should equate coming to Jesus because of Jesus living in you. Seeing you a changed man, seeing you a joyful man, seeing you a man not letting his sins condemn him because of the joy Jesus brought him, that has the power to prompt the person to ask “Could he really have met Jesus?”
Anyone could say,
“This man has never truly spoken his mind. And now he does so freely. Could he have met the Messiah?”
“This man has never felt free to admit when he’s wrong. And now he does so joyfully. Could he have met the Messiah?”
“This man has always feared dancing before others. And now he does with so much joy on his face. Could he truly have met Jesus?”
“This man has never taken time to be with his family. And now he rejoices in being with them so much. Could he have met the only one who can cause so much joy?”
See what Christ did to me. See the joy he overwhelmed me with. See the peace that flows from my thoughts. See the assurance I have of his existence.
Could I truly have met the Messiah? You need to answer that question for yourself.
I know whom I have met. I know I have met Christ. And I know he lives in me. Coolest man ever, Christ is. He is the coolest man and the coolest God ever. He must take after his Father, coolest dad ever. God is as cool as a gentler whisper. Coolest dad ever. I am safe in the arms of God, safe in Christ’s love, joy and peace.
