Week 3: “Reconnect”: Andrew -- The Introducer
(Preparation for Friend Day)
“Then the master told his servant, ‘Go out to the roads and country lanes and compel them to come in, so that my house will be full.' - Luke 14:23
The next day John was there again with two of his disciples. 36 When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, “Look, the Lamb of God!” 37 When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus. 38 Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, “What do you want?” They said, “Rabbi” (which means “Teacher”), “where are you staying?” 39 “Come,” he replied, “and you will see.” So they went and saw where he was staying, and they spent that day with him. It was about four in the afternoon. 40 Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother, was one of the two who heard what John had said and who had followed Jesus. 41 The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, “We have found the Messiah” (that is, the Christ). 42 And he brought him to Jesus. - John 1:35-42
– v. 38 - Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, "What do you want?"
Many people we know are looking for something to satisfy that deep longing in their lives but have no idea what it is or where to find it. So they seek to fill the need in other ways.
– v. 39 - "Come," he replied, "and you will see." So they went and saw where he was staying, and spent that day with him. It was about the tenth hour.
Jesus is always in the process of establishing a personal relationship with us. He is never fearful of the questions we ask. When you are the truth, you do not fear examination.
– vv. 41-42 The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, "We have found the Messiah" (that is, the Christ). 42 And he brought him to Jesus.
