Come and See
Nathanael said to Philip, "Can anything good come from Nazareth?"
Philip answered, "Come and see." (John 1:46)
Nathanael's question, two thousand years later, is just as relevant today, and has been asked by millions. Perhaps you are asking yourself that same question even now. To you I say, "Come and see."
Come and see the flame that tyranny and oppression and persecution have failed to extinguish. Come and see the Rock that has withstood the winds of time. Come and see the untold millions of lives that have been changed. See the guilty forgiven. See the downtrodden lifted up. See the hopeless full of hope. See the bitter full of forgiveness. See the cynical full of wonder. Can anything good come from Nazareth? Come and see.
Come and see broken homes rebuilt, and love rekindled. See joyous hearts at a graveside. See the orphans embraced, the widows empowered, the wretched clothed and fed, and the prisoner set free. See a tear wiped from a wrinkled face. See a body wracked from abuse made whole. See the blackest heart made white as snow. Come and see.
Come and see the Master encompassed by the throng. Hear the truth uncompromised. Feel His words burning in your heart. Listen to grace unblemished. Journey into the heart of the crumbling ruins of atheism and humanism and communism and see churches and schools and orphanages rising from the ashes. Across Africa listen to the drums beating in praise. In the heart of China, listen to the voices of underground congregations rising in worship. Among the crack houses and brothels and fallen humanity littering the inner city streets, see the little mission church rising like a beacon, feeding the hungry, clothing the orphans, sheltering the homeless, and giving hope to replace despair.
Can Jesus change your life?
Come and see!
1. God loves you! (Romans 5:8; John 3:16-17)
2. You are a sinner, separated from God. (Romans 3:23; Romans 6:23)
3. Jesus is the only way to the Father. (1 Peter 3:18; Acts 4:12; John 14:6)
4. You must receive Jesus as Lord and Savior. (Romans 10:9,13)
Pray this prayer...
Dear Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I know that you died on the cross for my sins and have risen from the dead. I open my heart to receive You as my Savior and Lord. Forgive me of my sins. Change me, and make me more like You. Help me to live for You and to share Your love with others. Amen.
Simply repeating this prayer will not save you. But, if you prayed this prayer or just simply poured out your soul to God with all your heart, I would like to rejoice with you. Please take a moment to contact me at and let me know of your decision.
