“I Would See Jesus!”

Blessed are all, whose desire is as the Greeks who said to Philip, “Sir, we would see Jesus.” (John 12:21) Yes, “Happy is he who hath one desire, if that one desire be set on Christ. If Jesus be a soul’s desire, it is a blessed sign of divine work within. Such a man will never be content with mere ordinances. He will say, ‘I want Christ; I must have Him, for mere ordinances are of no use to me; I want Jesus Christ, Himself; do not offer me these; you offer me the empty pitcher, while I am dying of thirst; give me water, or I die. Jesus is my soul’s desire. I would see Jesus!’” ~ C. H. Spurgeon
