May 15 – John 1:29-51 – “He first found how own brother Simon and told him, “We have found the Messiah” (Jn 1:41)
There is always a great joy in the heart when you find what you’ve been looking for. Indeed a great joy when one finds the right person to be friend, spouse, etc. The people’s hopes and joys were all concentrated on the Messiah – He was the one who could fulfill them.
They found what they were looking for. As a disciple of Jesus, I must remind myself that All my hopes are in Christ, and only He can satisfy the desires of my soul. It is He my only good, the single source of energy and life. I cannot live without remaining attached to Him. I must make sure that nothing gets in the way, and that, in appreciation for what God has done, I must protect and nurture this gift forever.
