Day 2–Welcome back!! Grab your Bibles, read the rest of John 1 and join our discussion.
today’s reading is John 1:26-51
John the Baptist
John the Baptist is baptizing people with water. He did this to perform a symbolic act of repentance. He demonstrates humility by stating that he isn’t even worthy to be a slave to Jesus. John also realizes that Jesus is the Messiah, he understood that Jesus was God from the beginning of time.
Question: Why do you think John said he wasn’t even worth to be a slave to Jesus?
Jesus’s first disciples
Andrew, Simon Peter and Nathanael are chosen by Jesus. When Jesus sees Nathanael, He says, “Now here is a genuine son of Israel –a man of compete integrity.”
Question: What does God see when he looks at you?
Question: Would anybody like to imagine what it must have been like to be Andrew, Peter and Nathanael and be chosen by Jesus? Do you think they knew he was the Son of God?
I want to be more like the disciples, and follow Him with abandon. I also think that is neat that when Jesus saw Nathanael He knew he was a man of integrity. I hope that when people meet me, they see integrity.
Dear Lord, I desire to have humility and integrity in all that I do. I pray that these qualities become natural and others would be drawn to You through me.
