TEXT: John 1:43-51

· We’re all searching for something
Losing something along the way and looking for the lost thing:

QUESTION: What are you searching for?

· Our frustrations and disappointments can leave us jaded
Searching without finding can be frustrating and disappointing
Becoming cynical and skeptical
The internal weight of disappointment is so great, it often is easier to stop searching than have to deal with being let down again

Jesus knew something about Nathanael before Nathanael knew anything about Jesus
