A Tough Jesus Question: What do YOU want?

Wonderstruck by John 1:38 today: Jesus asks two people who want to become disciples, "What do you want?"

This is a question that cuts deep into all of our lives-even after we say "Yes" to becoming a follower. What do we want? What to do we really want? What are our desires outside of the "right" religious answers or responses?

Spend some time prayerfully reflecting on Jesus' question, "What do you want?" Confess your hopes, dreams, desires to Jesus in the form of a prayer. Spend some time lingering in the silence to see how Jesus might respond.

  1. Pondering this today at a key point in my life. More if Him & less of me is my instant response but He’s asking me to dig a little deeper …

  2. Sitting at the feet of Jesus listening to HIm is the greatest joy I have ever experienced. So, I asked God this morning, outside of my own selfish human desires, and my big list of dreams, God what do YOU want. Here was His only response: “He has told you, O man, what is good and what does the Lord require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8 NASB

    Humbled.
