What Are You Looking For? - The Reverend Andria Skornik

What Are You Looking For? - The Reverend Andria Skornik

Consider Jesus' first words in the Gospel of John, spoken to two of John the Baptist's disciples who have turned to follow Jesus after he passed them on the road: "What are you looking for?" Taken at its deepest meaning, as "What are you seeking?", would we have been any more able to answer than they were? Jesus' question speaks to our deepest core, the spiritual creatures that we are as children of God, created for more than this physical world. We need to nurture our spiritual nature, to set time and practices aside that it may grow and we with it. Then we can follow Christ's invitation to "Come, and see." The Scripture references are Isaiah 49:1-7, Psalm 40:1-6, and 1 Corinthians 1:1-9. The Gospel reference is John 1:34-42.
