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).
Learn from Andrew:
1. Andrew was a seeker.
He was a disciple of John the Baptist.
John 1:35 Again, the next day, John stood with two of his disciples.
He was seeking the truth. He found the truth in John the Baptist and followed
Are you a seeker of Jesus? Seriously do you wake up in the mornings with a mind set that you want to find Jesus today. Roger spoke very powerful words at Bible Study last night when he said, 'a practice he employs on his daily walk is when he thinks something negative, he requires himself to think of two things positive regarding the same person, place or thing.' You see, he is seeking good. He is seeking Jesus.
Deuteronomy 4:29 But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul. If we begin our day today searching for Jesus, looking intently for His presence, we will find Him. Will you see bad today, probably, do you have to meditate on it, absolutely not. Will you see good today, definitely, will it change you and bless you, only if you choose to see it and meditate on it. Good is there and it is there for you to walk in and be blessed by, but you have to want it. Ephesians 2:10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. have to desire it with your whole heart and want desperately to see Jesus and to please Jesus. Jesus is looking down upon you right now. What is He seeing, I want Him to see me looking up at Him yearning for Him in a real way. I desire to see Him and His work and be willing to adjust my life so that our path collide. I want to be a part of God's Story. I want this story to go past salvation. I want salvation to simply be the beginning of a beautiful life long story that when told screams the presence of Jesus Christ in and through my life. I want to be a seeker. I want to seek Jesus as Andrew sought Jesus. I want my ways to become His ways. I want to love Him with all of me each and everyday. Along the way I want to tell God's Story. I want to tell it so those that know Jesus will hear his story and Jesus will be glorified. I want to tell it so those that don't know Jesus so they will come to know Him
and again He will be glorified.
