Upon seeing Jesus, John the Baptist exclaimed, “Behold, the Lamb of God!” After this, two disciples of John began to follow Jesus. Turning around to them, Jesus asks them, “WHAT DO YOU WANT?”

My friend, there has never been nor will there ever be a more important question coming from Jesus Himself to everyone of us today – “What do you want?” What would be your answer? What is your answer today? What do you want from God? The two disciples seem to be at a loss on how to answer and simply ask, “Where are You staying?” There is more meaning in their question than I think we can understand. Jesus’ answer to them was “Come, and you will see.” 

Let me ask you, my friend, what do you want from God? What do you need from Him? What do you want Him to do for you? If you cannot yet answer, then simply do as these two disciples of John – follow Jesus. Follow Him and you will find what you are looking for. (John 1:35-39)
