Come and see...

"Come and see" the angel said. Not "Believe me" or "Trust me." "Come and see the place where he lay." It's an invitation to verify, to question, to wonder, and to think. Faith is not blind; it is a decision made based on what is seen and how what is seen gives evidence for that which is not seen.  God does not need His creation to worship Him; He desires to show Himself to us and by doing so, initiate a relationship with us. Our response when we see Him must be to fall down in worship first, and then so radiate His love and grace and mercy that we cover our faces for fear of blinding others. The God who revealed Himself to Moses is the same God whose resurrection secures our eternity, once for all. Come and see. For now, we see dimly, but someday, face to face. What a glorious day. 

Come and see.
