What’s your normal reaction when a friend or family member says excitedly, “Hey, you’ve gotta see this!” Don’t we naturally lean in to see what’s bringing such excitement? In John 1:43-51, we read the story of Philip meeting Jesus. Jesus said simply, “Follow me,” and Philip did. But, do you know what else Philip did? He found his friend Nathanael and excitedly invited, “Come and see!”
“Come and see.” Pretty simple. Pretty clear. Pretty inviting, isn’t it? For those of us who are already Christ-followers, are we saying to our friends and family members, “Come and see!”? Join us as Pastor Larry McCall leads us in exploring the rich encounters that both Philip and Nathanael had with Jesus.
