Philip, who has been with Jesus from the start of His ministry, asks Him to show them the Father. Jesus is surprised because everything He has done has shown people the Father. Philip is lost in the fog. He’s looking for Jesus in the wrong places like expectations, religion, and culture. We too need to know how to look for Jesus when it is hard to see Him.
As we go into the unknown of 2021, we want our directions to come from Jesus and the Holy Spirit. We know where we are going because we are following Jesus.
