Jesus Invites You to Come and See

Jesus said to them, “Come and see.” They came and saw where he was staying, and they remained with him that day. It was about four o’clock in the afternoon (John 1:39).

God sent John the Baptist to prepare people for Jesus’ coming, and when John saw the Holy Spirit descend on Jesus and remain on Him, he knew Jesus was the Son of God who came to baptize people with the Holy Spirit.

One day John the Baptist saw Jesus and declared, “Behold (See) the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). When two of John’s disciples heard this, they began to follow Jesus. Then, Jesus turned to them and asked, “What are you looking for?” When they said they wanted to know where he was staying, Jesus invited them to “Come and See.” How would you answer Jesus if He invited you to “Come and See” Him? What would you look for if you followed Him to where He stayed?

The entire Gospel of John invites you to “Come and See” Jesus. Come and see who Jesus is, what Jesus has done, what Jesus can do, and what Jesus will do. Jesus Christ is the true Light that enlightens everyone, but not everyone wants the understanding that Jesus Christ alone can give everyone. Do you want to have the knowledge, understanding, and truth that Jesus gives those who “Come and See” Him? The true Light that enlightens everyone shines through the Gospel of John. John encourages you to learn more about Jesus. It is the will of God for people to become children of God by believing in the name of Jesus (believing in who Jesus is according to the Scriptures) and by receiving Jesus into their life, into their heart, to remain in their life as the Lord of their life forever. When you “Come and See” Jesus and truly come to know Jesus, you will truly love

Jesus, and you will want to follow Jesus wherever He leads. Become like Philip. He invited Nathanael to meet Jesus with the very words, “Come and See.” Keep reading the Gospel of John. “Come and See” Jesus. By seeing and believing in Jesus you can become a child of God. — L.G. Parkhurst, Jr.
