This is a question God or Jesus asks any one of us. God knows, as human beings we have a capacity to search deeper into the universe, and are always looking for something and fascinated by something bigger and stronger than us. We long for protection because we get scared easily sometimes. Many of us would seek God at one point in our lives, especially when things get tough, that’s why we end up praying. For, it is in our human nature to ask for help.
Sometimes, as you know, some of us would get to a point when we start searching for some kind of inspiration, e.g. someone would look up to a celebrity, a political leader or a religious leader to follow. But when we examine them we find imperfections and we get disappointed.
And on other occasions, we end up trusting those who are closer to us and we get even more disappointed when they let us down. However, if we want to get it right with God, we have to be careful about whom we follow and trust. If a person preaches the right message according to the scriptures, Jesus is pleased. So when he asks, who are you looking for? He also warns us to be careful. Mathew 7:15-23
It is also in our human nature as you know, to hunger for a good leader, someone who can motivate us , hence giving us assurance that things will be fine. Jesus had perfect qualities of a good leader. He listened to peoples’ concerns, fed the hungry, healed the sick, opened the eyes of the blind, etc. He was the kindest person who has ever stepped on planet earth, with a purpose to save us.
He knew there would be people with a different message from his, and he said, ‘such things must happen’ Mathew 24. He also said, ‘No one can come to the Father except through me’. John 14:6
Who is it you’re looking for? – is also applied when we start searching for who to worship. (He knew people will be seeking God in various ways, and some will be searching for wrong gods). The scripture says; seek God, the creator of the whole world with all your heart and you’ll find him. Jeremiah 29:11-13. Jesus said, ‘when a man believes in me, he does not believe in me only, but in the one who sent me, and when he looks at me he sees the one who sent me’. John 12:46. We learn from here that Jesus represented God perfectly, just as his Father in heaven wanted.
God created Christianity through Jesus. The scripture says, Jesus is the word of God, John 1:1-5. His teachings came straight from God. Jesus’ teachings transforms a human being from inside out. It touches the core of a human heart, and touches every area of our thinking.
Jesus said, ‘follow me’…Math. 4:19, for he knew about God and life more than we do. Babies are closer to God than adults, because they haven’t exercised their sin. However, as we start our journey of life, we somehow lose our way by wrong thinking and decisions. In Christianity Jesus is like a perfect kind hearted, loving, big brother, who’s like saying to us, hold my hand and I’ll show you the way.
So when we walk with him, we look up to him and listen. To the thief he says, don’t steal. If you hate someone he says, don’t hate, be good to them instead. And then he says’ forgive or you will not be forgiven…Mathew 6:14-15
For my Father’s will is that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life, and I’ll raise him/her up at the last day. John 6:40
