18 That was the reason so many went out to meet him—because they had heard about this miraculous sign. – John 12:18 NLT
John 12:17-22 NLT
The people were still spreading the word about what Jesus had done for Lazarus. This caused a lot of curiosity in the villages and caused others to want to meet Jesus. Even people who were not Jews had become interested in who this man was. They were there to celebrate the Passover Feast. They went to Philip and said “Sir, we would like to see Jesus.” There are lost people in our world today who want to see Jesus. they may not realize that is who they are looking for, so we have to be the ones to tell them. They are empty and they need someone to love them enough to tell them about Jesus. Does our lifestyle and the way we act toward them cause the lost to be attracted to Christ? Would a person who knew you feel comfortable about asking you about Jesus? Are we letting our light shine?
2 The people who walk in darkness will see a great light.
For those who live in a land of deep darkness, a light will shine. – Isaiah 9:2 NLT
