Jesus has come to the earth because the world has never seen God. John the Baptist understands this, and so, the first words out of his mouth are: “LOOK!” John invites people to come and see Jesus, because he knows that if they see Jesus, they will see God. Jesus invites the disciples to come and see him, because he knows that if they see him, they will see God. The disciples invite others to come and see Jesus, because they know that if they see him, they will see God. Have you come and seen Jesus yet?
