John 1:41-42a – He first found his own brother Simon, and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which is translated, the Christ). And he brought him to Jesus.

When a person finds Jesus, he usually wants his relatives to meet Him too. Salvation is too good to keep to yourself. Andrew went to his own brother with the wonderful news, “We have found the Messiah!” What an amazing announcement this was! For at least four thousand years, men had waited for the promised Christ, God’s Anointed One. Truly they were living where history was being made. How simple Andrew’s message was. It was only five words “We have found the Messiah” and God used this message to draw Peter to Himself. This teaches us that you do not have to be a great preachers or a clever speakers. You only need to tell others about the Lord Jesus in simple words, and God will take care of the rest. Andrew brought his brother to the right place and to the right Person. He brought him to Jesus.


Who will you bring to Jesus? Because of Andrew’s interest, Peter became a great fisher of men, and one of the leading apostles of the Lord. You never know what God will do through someone you bring to the Lord Jesus. In fact, it is not necessary for you to know what God will do, you just need to know God can do anything with anyone, you must simply tell others about Jesus and His love. Your challenge this week is to share Jesus with others by telling them what He has done and is doing in your life. This may be a family member that needs to know Christ, a coworker that has not yet met the Savior of their soul or a total stranger that longs to understand the fact that God loves them immensely. I pray that God leads you to these individuals whom He wants to save, and that He gives you the opportunity to be a part of His plan. God bless you always.
