19 So, the Pharisees said to one another, “See, this is getting us nowhere. Look how the whole world has gone after him!” 20 Now there were some Greeks among those who went up to worship at the festival. 21 They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, with a request. “Sir,” they said, “we would like to see Jesus.” John 12:19-21 (NIV)
There were those in the crowd who were believers. We saw it at the beginning of this passage when they came and laid down palm branches. The Bible tells us that some Greeks came to worship at the festival. They went up to Philip and asked to meet Jesus. There are a lot of people who are excited to meet Jesus – who want to meet Him to worship Him. In Colossians 1:15, it states that Jesus is the image of the invisible God. People came to see Jesus and have a relationship with Him. Now, just because you are a worshiper of God does not mean that you will never have trouble. It just means you can use your faith throughout your troubles and can lean on God during the hard times.
