When We Discover Jesus

I was reading this morning, and just stumbled upon a concept.
When we discover see Jesus, things change.
John 1:35-42
The next day John was there again with two of his disciples. When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, "Look, the Lamb of God!" When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus. Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, "What do you want?" They said, "Rabbi" (which means Teacher), "where are you staying?" "Come"he replied, "and you will see." So they went and saw where he was staying, and spent the day with him. It was about the tenth hour. Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, was one of the two that heard what John had said and who had followed Jesus. The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him. "We have found the Messiah" (that is, the Christ). And he brought him to Jesus.
When we really discover who Jesus is (the promised Messiah, the Lamb of God, the Christ) we will want to follow him. Dropping everything and serving the One will be our focus. "They followed Jesus"
When we really discover who Jesus is, we will bring people we love to Him. We will not be embarrassed or afraid to share who He is, because He changed our everything. "The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother....and he brought him to Jesus"
When we will really discover who Jesus is, we will long to spend time with Him, wherever He goes. "They said "Rabbi" ... "Where are you staying?" they went... And spent that day with him."
I am praying that these become my focus, my intent, and my actions.
What ways can you follow him? Bring people to him? And spend time with him?
Happy Sunday.
Love, M
