Andrew was one of the first disciples Jesus called. And, in the Bible, Andrew never did a miracle, never preached a sermon, never told a parable, and never wrote anything that became scripture. But, Andrew is very special because, every time we see him in God’s word, he is attempting to introduce people to Jesus. He introduced the little boy with the loaves and fishes to Jesus. He also introduced the Greeks who came saying, “We would see Jesus.” And in our scripture passage for today below, we see Andrew introducing his brother Peter to Christ. So, as you read today, ask the Lord to reveal people in your life you can introduce to Jesus.
(John 1:35-42) 35 Again, the next day, John stood with two of his disciples. 36 And looking at Jesus as He walked, he said, “Behold the Lamb of God!” 37 The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. 38 Then Jesus turned, and seeing them following, said to them, “What do you seek?”
They said to Him, “Rabbi” (which is to say, when translated, Teacher), “where are You staying?” 39 He said to them, “Come and see.” They came and saw where He was staying, and remained with Him that day (now it was about the tenth hour).
40 One of the two who heard John speak, and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. 41 He first found his own brother Simon, and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which is translated, the Christ). 42 And he brought him to Jesus. Now when Jesus looked at him, He said, “You are Simon the son of Jonah. You shall be called Cephas” (which is translated, A Stone).
