The Easiest Way To Share Your Faith – John 1:29-51

From my reading in John 1:29-51 in the One Year New Testament.

The first disciples of Jesus were recruited in a simple way. Jesus got some of his first disciples from John’s followers.

“As Jesus walked by, John looked at him and declared, “Look! There is the Lamb of God!” When John’s two disciples heard this, they followed Jesus. Jesus looked around and saw them following. “What do you want?” he asked them. They replied, “Rabbi” (which means “Teacher”), “where are you staying?” “Come and see,” he said.” John 1:36–39

Jesus invited them to “come and see.” He invited them to his home to get to know him.

We can invite people to come and see what Jesus is all about by inviting them to Church, Bible studies, or just to spend time with other Christians.

One of the two guys who spent the day with Jesus was Andrew. Here’s the first thing he did after spending the day with Jesus…

“Andrew went to find his brother, Simon, and told him, “We have found the Messiah” (which means “Christ”). Then Andrew brought Simon to meet Jesus.” John 1:41–42

The easiest way to share your faith is to bring others to environments where they can meet Jesus.

Also he started with the relationship he already had. Andrew didn’t know a lot about Jesus, but he knew enough to invite his brother to meet him!

You don’t have to be an expert evangelist to invest in someone’s life and invite them to “come and see” Jesus!

Then Jesus found Philip. Here’s what Philip did…

Philip went to look for Nathanael and told him, “We have found the very person Moses and the prophets wrote about! His name is Jesus, the son of Joseph from Nazareth.” “Nazareth!” exclaimed Nathanael. “Can anything good come from Nazareth?” “Come and see for yourself,” Philip replied. John 1:45–46

Philip was convinced that he had found the promised Messiah!

Nathanial was skeptical but Philip invited him to come see for himself. It is not always our job to convince the skeptical that Jesus is real, we can introduce them to Jesus and let them decide.

Anyone can invite someone to come to church or encourage someone to read the Bible for themselves and discover who Jesus is.

I encourage you to invite those who don’t believe in your life to “Come and See” Jesus!
