Have you ever found the profound need to see Jesus? There comes a time in life when one must search deep within ones soul for the truth. The Bible tell us that the truth shall set thee free. The ideal of freedom is what most people and nations seek in one form or fashion. The goal of ones life is to discover ones creator. Would you like to see God?
Phillip asked Jesus to show us the father. Jesus was and is the light of the world. He is the truth and the life. We must pay close and careful attention to what Jesus said and did to give us life more abundantly. Jesus said, if you have seen me, you have seen the father. Jesus loved His enemies, Jesus pray for them.
The Sermon on the mound is one of meekness. Jesus was meek. When we see Jesus, we see God. The Joy of Jesus is seeing God. God is love. When we experience true love we see God is Christ Jesus. The cross is where death meets life. Jesus gave His life so that we may live and see the Father God. This is the Joy of Jesus.
