And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed. And Simon and they that were with him followed after him. And when they had found him, they said unto him, All men seek for thee. And he said unto them, Let us go into the next towns, that I may preach there also: for therefore came I forth. (Mark 1:35-38).
Today's Morsel: I've noticed a lot of billboards, newspaper articles, and poster boards are reflecting missing persons. These people who others are trying to be locate so they can be reunited with their families and loved one. So there is an all points bulletin looking out for them. Because many knew that Jesus was the cure for their illness and could fix their hunger and other needs, they sought for Him. Often they came to the disciples looking for Jesus. Can people find Jesus when they come to you? Can they locate Him when they see you? Can they tell that you are one of His disciples? Jesus said that love one to the other is the evidence that you are His disciple. Peter told Jesus, "All men seek for Thee." And it is no different today. People are looking for Jesus. Many are looking in the wrong places because many churches have become camouflaged and are not reflecting the truth. I heard one lady say that she once went to a church and that they had so many strobe lights going, that she thought that she was back in the night club. We are the church, and we must not blend in with the world. We must let the true light shine. People want Jesus. They are hurting, sick, and suffering. They are crying out as the man in the tombs. Are you going to lead them to Him, or are you going to hide your light and blend in with the world? Jesus said if you deny Him before men, He will deny you before His father in heaven. Jude tells us, "And of some have compassion, making a difference"
(Jude 1:22). Who will say that you showed them the way to Jesus?
Sing: This little light of mind, I'm gonna let it shine. This little light of mind, I'm gonna let it shine. This little light of mind, I'm gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.
