Everyone Aches for Jesus

In one of their more popular songs, Irish rock band U2 proclaims, "and I still haven't found what I'm looking for.."

Peoples hearts and minds are often unknowingly transfixed on Jesus. We hear this in song, we read it in books and we see it in how people live. Until the touch of Jesus awakens our hearts and grabs our hand as we fumble in the dark, we remain blind to what we really need.

It is precisely for this reason that Christians can not look "down on" those who have yet to see Jesus as precious. To do so, would discredit Jesus' saving act on our life and would put us as the boasting initiator. We love, because He first loved us.

Lord, help us to see that all around us your creation aches for you. And, help us - who have been mercifully rescued - to reach out and lend a hand to those yet fumbling about. For your great name, Jesus. Amen.
