What do you do when you have great news? What do you when you are so excited about something? Furthermore, what do you do when you experience something wonderful and exhilarating and awesome? Well, we go and tell people about it, especially the people we love the most.
In this week's story, Philip was converted to Christ and realized that Jesus is truly the Messiah that the prophet had talked about. So he seeks out his best friend Nathaniel, who is also called Bartholomew, to tell him about it. However, Nathaniel was a skeptic and reacted condescendingly to where the Messiah came from. His response was, "Can anything good come out of Nazareth?"
Philip showed us an example of how to share our faith, not by arguments or by coercion. He was just calm and filled with hope, and told Nathaniel to come and see for himself. Nathaniel follows him and in doing so, meets Jesus the Messiah and becomes one of the disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Join us this week as we continue our Great Commission Series, learning from Philip to "Tell" others about what God has done for us, especially those closest to us.
