“So they went and saw where he was staying, and they spent that day with him. It was about four in the afternoon.” John 1:39
John said it, “There goes the Lamb of God.” John was Jesus’ cousin and he knew Jesus was the Messiah. John wasn’t trying to amass a follower-ship, he was trying to point people to Jesus.
His two disciples heard John glorify God and, like smart disciples, followed Jesus. They asked Jesus, “Where are you staying? ” Jesus said, “Come and see.”
I love that Jesus did not give them an address or say meet me at such and such synagogue. Jesus said, Come and see. But the disciples asked the right question, “Jesus “where can I find you?
Where can we find Jesus today? Find the poor, the lonely, the tired, the weak, and the unloved and you will find Jesus.
The journey to becoming a follower of Jesus starts with asking the right question. Jesus, where are you staying? How do I get into your presence? How can I learn from you?
Jesus still answers this question the same way today, “Come and see.”
