In Jesus, we see that God is a “seeking” God. God is the “seeker” looking for the valuable “Golden Snitch,” you and me. We are golden in the eyes of God. So how do you respond to this God? In our gospel lesson, two of the disciples of John turn to Jesus and begin to follow him. When Jesus turned to them and asked, What do you seek? What are you looking for? they replied Rabbi or “Teacher”, where are you staying?” What does it mean to walk, to live with you? Come and see, he replied. You can know about Jesus but you cannot know Jesus unless you commit yourself to walk with Him, to live with Him, to take Jesus seriously. And you cannot know God, truly know God, unless you are willing to walk with the living resurrected Christ.
