The invitation of Jesus to “come and you will see” to two people will become for them a life changing experience as they spend time with the Lord. The same is true for us; may we actively create opportunities to drawn near to Christ, so that we might be filled with His grace.
Philip’s invitation to Nathaniel in the Gospel today to “come and see” serves as a powerful reminder for the Church today. Not only are we directed to invite others to join us in faith, but we are also charged to live the faith with vibrant conviction.
Jesus invites Philip to become a disciple with the words, “Follow me.” The language is clear, direct and simple. Philip’s response inspires us to consider how the Lord invites us to follow today. How will we respond?
Andrew and another disciple respond to the invitation of Jesus to “come and see.” Their day with Jesus will change their lives forever as they invite others to encounter the Lord as well. May we do the same!
