John 1:35-51; 3:1-16.
When Jesus gave the invitation to “Come, follow me”, He wasn’t just offering an opportunity for people to be casual observers of all that He did, or avid listeners of all that He said. Doing those things would be important, but they needed to lead somewhere.
The call was to be an apprentice, one who looks, listens, and then follows the example they’ve been taught.
Connecting with Jesus will not leave us the same as we were before we met Him.
