Have You Seen Jesus?

One of the questions our Fanning the Flame coach asks us at each meeting is, “Where have you seen God at work this month?”  A friend on the team said to me, “I don’t understand why we’re doing this.  God is at work all the time, it isn’t a rarity we need to point out.”  Well, yes and no.  God is always at work, the problem is we become distracted and fail to notice what’s right in front of us.  The question is really just a reminder to open our eyes and pay attention.  This isn’t something new, the disciples had the same tendency.

“Early in the morning, Jesus stood on the shore, but the disciples did not realize that it was Jesus.” John 21:4

There’s a song we use of Via de Cristo weekends that expresses the same thought.  It’s called, “Have You Seen Jesus, My Lord?”  Listen to it and look for Jesus in the events and people around you today.
