We all have the want and the need to talk about the things that we are excited about and things we like.
New movies or games, places to eat or visit you could say that we are constantly evangelizing to each other; we just keep talking about the easy stuff and keep the harder stuff to ourselves. This mindset gets us by but then we wander around thinking that no one really understands us or cares.
Why don’t we talk about the blessings that we have, the peace that we strive for or what we are really looking for?
John was standing with two of his disciples,
and as he watched Jesus walk by, he said,
“Behold, the Lamb of God.”
The two disciples heard what he said and followed Jesus.
Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them,
“What are you looking for?”
They said to him, “Rabbi” — which translated means Teacher —,
“where are you staying?”
He said to them, “Come, and you will see.”
So they went and saw where Jesus was staying,
and they stayed with him that day.
It was about four in the afternoon.
Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter,
was one of the two who heard John and followed Jesus.
He first found his own brother Simon and told him,
“We have found the Messiah” — which is translated Christ —.
Then he brought him to Jesus.
Jesus looked at him and said,
“You are Simon the son of John;
you will be called Cephas” — which is translated Peter.
