"He found first his own brother Simon and said to him, “We have found the MESSIAH” (which translated means Christ)."
Jesus came to earth as a baby so that He might grow into a man, but not just any man. He came to be our Savior. He came to die for our sins. He came as our MESSIAH. Jesus' cousin, John the Baptist, recognized that He was the Lamb of God who had come to take away the sins of the world. Andrew, who heard John's proclamation about Jesus, followed Jesus and asked where He was staying. After spending time with Jesus, Andrew went and found his brother Simon Peter and told him, "We have found the MESSIAH." Andrew was intentional about his search for the MESSIAH. He was intentional about telling others he had found Him. Shouldn't that be being said about us, also?
Jesus Christ, MESSIAH, You bring all good things: love, forgiveness, hope, peace, and joy! May we be as Andrew and be intentional about following You and about telling others about You.
