Read Mark 1-4
And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great things he did, came unto him. Mark 3:8
Have you ever noticed how people were drawn to Jesus Christ? It started at the very beginning of His life, when the shepherds were told of His birth. Immediately after the angels announced His arrival, the shepherds knew they wanted to see this Savior born in the city of David, and they set out to be His first visitors.
The wise men soon followed, using the star of Bethlehem as their guide. They told Herod specifically that they were there to find the newborn King and worship Him. Their exceeding great joy was multiplied as they fell at the young child’s feet and offered their gifts.
Then we read about the multitudes that sought Jesus out once He began His public ministry. When they heard about the great things He was doing — the miracles both physical and spiritual — they were desperate to be near Him and see it for themselves. Even when He instructed people not to speak of what He had done, they still told everyone they knew about the changes He had made in their lives.
Are you drawn to Jesus Christ in such a way? Is He the one you go to first when you need to talk, need healing or need some other miracle in your life? And are you directing others to Him, pointing them to His side for miracles of their own? When the people heard about the great things He was doing, they came to Him, as so should we.
