Looking for Jesus in All the Wrong Places Christians...
God is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in Spirit and in Truth. The woman saith unto Him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when He is come, He will tell us all things. Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am He. John, Chapter 4, verses 24-26.
Have you ever watched movies where men or women are looking for their true love, but have a good friend they overlook because they are looking for the ideal partner? The majority of the movie is focused on the main character pursuing people who are attractive, popular, etc., but never are satisfied. Later, in the movie, they find that the ideal person for them is their true-blue friend who has been there, all along.
It’s like this lady who is desperately searching for Jesus, without realizing He is right in front of her. He isn’t attractive, popular, etc., so He might go unnoticed. He is our true-blue friend and Savior who is there to save us, but do we notice Him? Like the song says, “Looking for love in all the wrong places,” do we want to be a “Looking for Jesus in All the Wrong Places Christian” or should we stop to realize that He has been right here in front of us, all along?
