Looking for You
I will speak with someone about Jesus
by Catholic.net | Source: Catholic.net
Jesus, I believe that you are the Word come into the world. I know you speak to
me of the Father, of his truth and love. I know that I can trust you to bring me to the Father. In
spite of the smallness of my heart, you come in search of me. Thank you for coming to look for
Help me look for you more today, Lord.
Came to His Own:
Our God came looking for us. “It is not that we have loved God, but that he
has first loved us” (Cf. 1 John 4:10). What is it that so attracts God to us? The Bible uses images
of the love of a spouse or a parent to help us understand how deeply God desires to make us his own.
He knows that this is where our true happiness lies. Often, he looks for man in mysterious ways, but
in Jesus Christ he plainly shows himself and his desire to be with us. Do I appreciate the gift of
the Incarnation? Do I understand a bit better each day how humbly and powerfully God looks for my
2. Born of God:
Our transformation into Christ is a gift. God offers us this
gift, and if we are open to it, he deeply changes our relationship with him. Through Christ we have
confidence to come before the Father and call him our “Father,” not just our “Creator.” Through
Christ we have the power to lay aside sin and put on the holiness of God. Through Christ we have the
possibility of leaving a mark on the history of salvation, helping to bring his Good News to the
world. This comes from God’s goodness and mercy. Do I appreciate the gift of my divine adoption? Do
I try to live as a new man or woman, born of the Spirit?
3. Full of Grace and Truth:
Jesus Christ shows us what it is to be truly human. The power and beauty of his life, the
unselfishness of his total love, help us see the heights to which we are called. He shows us that it
is possible to be holy. He leads the way; we have only to follow in his footsteps. With him we can
be confident that the good we have done in our lives will last forever. Do I let myself fall in love
with Christ each day? Am I fascinated with him to the level that I discover something new in him
each day? Can I say that each day he wins me more and more for his cause?
Lord, thank you for coming to look for me.
Today I want to look for you,
too. Help me to
discover you in faith. Help me to see the signs
of your presence in the
Church, the sacraments,
and the good you sow in those around me.
Give me new ears and an
open heart to listen to
your Word, and to welcome you into my
Today I will speak with someone about Jesus’ love for us
as demonstrated through his Incarnation.
