“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 1:46

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Nathanael asked,

“Can anything good come from that place?”

.

“Come and see” replied Philip.

– John 1:46 (TJB)

REFLECTION…

.

Today’s verse is from a conversation between two men,

one of whom, Philip, had just met Christ

and was, very excitedly, telling his friend Nathanael about this Jesus,

who hailed from the village of Nazareth.

.

Nathanael was, typically, sceptical

and he scoffed sarcastically at what was, supposedly, “good news”.

.

Philip’s reaction to all this, sets a wonderful example for all of us:

he presented a significant yet simple invitation to Nathanael:

"Come and see".

.

In spite of being totally unconvinced,

Nathanael takes up his friend’s invitation

and goes and discovers the truth for himself!

.

Whenever we are with someone

who, for whatever reason, does not know or acknowledge Jesus,

should the subject come up, we must not only be content with words.

.

The knowledge of Jesus needs, above all, a living experience,

and inviting others to come along with us

and experience for themselves what we ourselves have experienced,

can be what will set them off on a wonderful, intimate and profound relationship with Jesus.

.

.

PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord Jesus, use me…to invite others to “come and see” You.
