Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 18

18. I saw you while you were still under the fig tree (John 1:48).
He sees you. Long before you encounter Him, Christ watches and knows who you are. The love of God preempts any personal connection. He gets there first and with that advantage brings love that doesn’t presuppose a future connection. Ours is still to choose to follow our “Philips” into His presence, but He loves and He loves first. And that must be a part of what it means to love like He did. We must love those we see, even before they see us. We may not have the capacity to see under every fig tree, but we must learn to love those we do see–in anticipation of the future opportunity to experience relationship.
