The next day John again was standing with two of his
disciples, and as he watched Jesus walk by, he exclaimed, “Look, here is the
Lamb of God!” The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus.
When Jesus turned and saw them following, he said to them, “What are you
looking for?” They said to him, “Rabbi” (which translated means Teacher), “where
are you staying?” He said to them, “Come and see.” They came and saw where he
was staying, and they remained with him that day. It was about four o’clock in
the afternoon. One of the two who heard John speak and followed him was Andrew,
Simon Peter’s brother. He first found his brother Simon and said to him, “We
have found the Messiah” (which is translated Anointed). He brought Simon to
Jesus, who looked at him and said, “You are Simon son of John. You are to be
called Cephas” (which is translated Peter).
Do I realize if I bring my ego to
people, I bring death; if I bring Jesus, I bring life?
- How will I respond when Jesus ask me, “What are
you looking for?”
