In John's gospel, just after the account of the Triumphal Entry beginning with 12:20, he writes of some Greeks who come to Philip and say to him, "Sir, we wish to see Jesus. Reading from verses 20 through 26 we read that Jesus proclaims His time has come and His death is imminent and necessary for the salvation of mankind. Anyone who wishes to follow Him must lose his life in the sense he gives control to the Lord.
What do you think caused these Greeks to want to see Jesus? Jesus had raised Lazarus from the dead. He had come to Jerusalem riding a colt just as prophecy had stated. The Passover was coming and the Greeks may have been in the same situation as Matthew records the city was. Matthew writes the whole city was stirred and asking, "Who is this?" What do you think went through the minds of the these men and how did they react to Jesus? How do you react to Jesus as He comes into your life? Many will ask to see Him, but when they do, how do they react? What will you do when you meet Jesus? How did you receive Jesus - were you wanting to meet Him? Why?
Consider what has happened to your life since meeting Him? Are you willing to testify about meeting Him to others?
