Come and See
"Philip found Nathanael and told him, 'We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph...'Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?' Nathanael asked. 'Come and see,' said Philip.” John 1:45-46
Come and see. Come and see Jesus, the Son of God. Come and see Jesus, the Savior of the world. Come and see Jesus, the forgiver of sins. Come and see Jesus, a best friend and servant. Come and see Jesus: teacher, student and healer. Come and see Jesus: Master, Lord and King of Kings. Come and see Jesus and be saved forevermore. Eyes of faith feast on a relationship with Jesus.
As Christ followers we have the privilege of inviting people to come and see Jesus. When the lost encounter Christ they can see the way more clearly. By God’s grace, seekers can see His work of grace in our speech and in our unspoken words. They see our kindness in the face of unkindness. They see our respect when we are disrespected. They see our love when we are unloved. They see us forgive when we are rejected. Christ in us is a window into the wonders of God’s grace.
“You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.” 2 Corinthians 3:3
Who do you know who needs to know God? Who can you invite to come and see Jesus? Indeed, you earn the right to invite by first investing in another's life. First you invest and then you invite. You invest in prayer and fasting for a friend to come to faith. You invest in caring for a child, so perhaps their parents might become children of God. You invest financially in a needy family, so they can receive the true riches of a relationship and fellowship with Christ.
You appeal to a person’s intellect with Christ’s fulfillment of prophecy, and then conversion to Him is sealed when they experience Jesus in their heart. Facts without faith creates knowledge unredeemed. But when you introduce others to Jesus in a loving relationship they are redeemed by Jesus. Keep your passionate fellowship with your Savior fresh and you will naturally want others to meet your best friend. You can say, "Come and see Jesus!" because you have seen Jesus.
“You will be his witness to all people of what you have seen and heard.” Acts 22:15
