“Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father
?” (John 14:8-9).
Do you hear Philips request? Show us the Father and we will be satisfied. We are the same way; often seeking something in addition to Christ. Show me the miracle. Answer my specific prayer. Heal me from this disease. Give me wealth and prosperity. Broaden my influence. Are you satisfied with Christ? Is He enough? Do you crave the spectacular?
He is asking today: “Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me?” Know Him and find complete satisfaction. Know Him and understand more of the Heavenly Father and of the Holy Spirit—the fulness of God. Know Him and acquire an inner peace that passes all understanding. Know Him and find the way, receive truth, and inherit eternal life. Know Christ, dear friend, and be satisfied!
