The Invitation

I’ve been working through the lectionary text from John’s gospel this week (John 1:29-42). Most specifically verse 38 where Jesus invites the first few disciples to “come and see.”

What did this invitation look like, feel like, or sound like to those first disciples? What does this invitation look like, feel like, or sound like to us today as followers of the risen Christ?

I came across this video clip from a post in a Facebook conversation about this text and how we sometimes miss the invitation entirely by how we answer and live out a question like that today. Take a look and offer your thoughts if you would like. I always find it interesting to experience how we receive Jesus’ invitation to “come and see” and then live out of that invitation by inviting others.

Blessings,

Pastor Craig
