Come and See

John 1:45-46   Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.  And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.
 
Not too long ago I had the opportunity to introduce my kids to a famous person that I had met while serving in the military. It was great to see their excitement as we shook hands and took pictures together. It was an experience that they would take with them for the rest of their lives and was only possible because I took the time to make the introductions. 
 
When Phillip met Jesus he went to go find his friend Nathanael. You can almost see the excitement as Phillip tells his friend that hey have found the Messiah, but Nathanael is skeptical. Rather than get into a lengthy debate, Phillip simply says “Come and see”. When the introductions were made, Nathanael was convinced and became a disciple of Christ.
 
This is the ministry that each Christian is called to. We have a relationship with the very Son of God and now have the privilege of introducing others to Christ. Nathanael may have stayed under that tree, and missed out on the introduction of a lifetime if Phillip hadn’t come to get him and bring his friend to Jesus. We live in a world that is desperately searching for hope. WE HAVE THAT HOPE IN CHRIST! Are we willing to make the introduction?
 
This morning as we ReFocus our hearts and minds on Christ let’s spend some time considering those around us who need to be introduced to the Savior. Take a page out of Phillip’s playbook and go find a friend and say “Come and See”.
