“Come and See”, I’ve found something exciting, mind-blowing, life-changing.
“Come and See”, this is brilliant, I want to share it with you, show you, help you understand.
“Come and See”, this is it, that thing we’ve been waiting for, that’s going to make all the difference.
“Come and See”, experience it.
Lord, you call me to come and see, to come with you, to discover all you are and all you show me of God. Am I enthusiastic, or reluctant? Eager, or hanging back? Ready to go with you, or wanting to wait and see? You invite me to come with you, what will I do?
And if I am with you, what do I do? Keep it quiet, I don’t want anyone to know? Or do I invite others – to come and see, to discover you for themselves, to know you and follow you?
Come and See, Come and See what God can do. Lord, I come. Work in me, through me, with me – that others may come and see too.
John 1:43-51 (CEV)
Jesus Chooses Philip and Nathanael
43-44 The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee. There he met Philip, who was from Bethsaida, the hometown of Andrew and Peter. Jesus said to Philip, “Come with me.”
45 Philip then found Nathanael and said, “We have found the one that Moses and the Prophets wrote about. He is Jesus, the son of Joseph from Nazareth.”
46 Nathanael asked, “Can anything good come from Nazareth?”
Philip answered, “Come and see.”
47 When Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him, he said, “Here is a true descendant of our ancestor Israel. And he isn’t deceitful.”
48 “How do you know me?” Nathanael asked.
Jesus answered, “Before Philip called you, I saw you under the fig tree.”
49 Nathanael said, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God and the King of Israel!”
50 Jesus answered, “Did you believe me just because I said that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see something even greater. 51 I tell you for certain that you will see heaven open and God’s angels going up and coming down on the Son of Man.”
