Be Like Andrew and Philip, Go Get a Friend

May 5, 2009

In John 1:40-42, Andrew heard John the Baptist say of Jesus, “Behold, the Lamb of God!” Andrew didn’t just internalize this information. He immediately went to get his brother Peter.

Then in John 1:43-51, Jesus called Philip to follow Him. Philip didn’t simply internalize this call. He immediately went to get his friend Nathanael. 

Both men, Andrew and Philip, set a great example for us. Let us not simply internalize what we have found in Christ Jesus and in His church. Let’s take that message to our friends, our family, our neighbors, our co-workers. Let’s tell them the same thing Philip told Nathanael. “Come check it out for yourself.”

What a great opportunity we have at the Franklin Church of that right now. On May 17, we are having a very special evangelistic push to invite as many as we possibly can to attend and here the very special sermon–“If You Want to Win Life’s Lottery, You’ve Got to Lean on the Lord.” 

You only have a week and a half left. Keep praying and keep inviting.
