Names of Christ: Messiah

Wendy Griffith - CBN News Anchor/Reporter

The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, "We have found the Messiah" (John 1:41).

We have found the Messiah! Just imagine how long they had waited, prayed, and looked for the coming Messiah. And suddenly, one day, He’s right there in the flesh, right in front of their eyes.

Of course, Andrew did what we all would do. He ran and found the person closest to him, his brother, Simon, to tell him the great news. Then they never wanted to leave His side and became the first disciples of Jesus of Nazareth.

It reminds me of my two decades-plus, prayerful search and quest to find my husband, Bill. After what seems like a million prayers, a lot of tears, and a few false alarms, one day he was right there in front of me in the flesh. And when the light bulb finally went on and I realized “he's the one” I had waited so long for, I never wanted to leave his side either.

Shakespeare said, Journeys end in lovers meeting. It was the same for those first disciples. When they realized they had found the Christ, their wait was over—journey’s end.

The good news for us this Christmas is: When we find Jesus, when we make Him our Lord and Savior, our wait is over too. We don’t have to look to the world anymore to try and fill that void that only Jesus can fill. We have found the Messiah.

Merry Christmas!
