Let Them Know


Most of us have heard of Jesus’ disciple Peter, but if it wasn’t for his brother they might not have met. You see this week’s hero is Andrew who brought Peter to Jesus. The God theme of his life might be to “Go out and eagerly share the good news about Jesus Christ”.
Look at some of Andrew’s encounters with Jesus:

First to follow Jesus. (John 1:35-40) (Told his brother, Peter, could this be the Christ?)

Called to be a fisher of men. (Matthew 4:19)

Sent out on a mission to the Jews to preach “the kingdom of heaven is at hand,” heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, and cast out demons. (Matthew 10:5-8)

Informed Jesus that several Greeks wanted to see him.     (John 12:20-22)

Told Jesus of the boy with five loaves of bread and two fish. (John 6:8, 9)

Was present when Jesus appeared to the disciples after the Resurrection. (John 20:19-25)

Was present for the Great Commission when Jesus sent his disciples to all nations. (Matthew 28:16-20)

Witnessed Jesus being taken up into heaven. (Acts 1:8, 9)

Andrew believed in Christ and wanted everyone else to know Him too. May we have that same kind of enthusiasm for sharing the Gospel. Amen?
