“Come and see.”
Philip shows us what it is to be a true disciple. His obedience and love for Jesus leads him to call on others to “come and see” Jesus. Whilst Nathanael was a little reluctant, Philip’s welcome invitation led him to follow and develop a loving relationship with Jesus.
How is our relationship with Jesus? Do we see him as a friend that we can trust? Do we know him well enough to let others know about him? As we continue in our spiritual journey, into the new year, let us listen to Jesus’ call to us to “come” to him, so that we can “see” whom he is calling us to reach out to in our daily lives. Let us be the joy, hope, peace, faith and love through God’s word to our brothers and sisters.
