Just Come And See, Part 2 (Just Jesus Evangelistic Campaign #15)

JJMessage

Today, I am continuing the daily Just Jesus Evangelistic Campaign sermon series, which is aimed at sharing the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ with unbelievers and reminding Christians, in this important election year, to keep the main thing the main thing — and that is reaching unbelievers with the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and praying for their salvation, for the problem in America is not only disobedient presidents and politicians but disobedient pastors, preachers, and parishioners who have refused to obey God’s Great Commission and who have refused to obey God’s repeated commands to “pray without ceasing” for unbelievers, believers, and political leaders. This campaign is inspired by the following three verses: 1 Corinthians 2:2 which says, “For I determined not to know anything among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.” Acts 5:42 which says, “And daily in the temple, and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.” And 2 Timothy 2:4 which says, “No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.” This series is not for Christians primarily. I hope you are one of those who love to hear the old, old story told again and again. As the hymn says, “I love to tell the story, for those who know it best / Seem hungering and thirsting to hear it like the rest.” But, this series is primarily for unbelievers, so they can hear and understand the Gospel and be saved.This is message number 15.

John 1:43-51:

43 The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me.

44 Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.

45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.

46 And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.

47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and saith of him, Behold an Israelite indeed, in whom is no guile!

48 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me? Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee, when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.

49 Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.

50 Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree, believest thou? thou shalt see greater things than these.

51 And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

Michael Rogness said, “Our task as Christians is not to ‘prove’ the truth of the Christian faith, although many scholars have written persuasively of the truth of Christianity. Our task is not even to persuade others to become Christian. Our task is to say, ‘Come and see.'”

John’s account of the beginning days of Jesus’ ministry continues with the call of Philip. We are not told much about Philip joining Jesus’ team of disciples, just that Jesus told him, “Follow me,” and he did. The other Gospel accounts inform us that Jesus had previously encountered Philip, and evidently, Philip was already convinced that Jesus was the Messiah so he did not express any reservations or doubt about following Jesus here.

John 1:40-42:

40 One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother.

41 He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ.

42 And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.

Greg Laurie said, “To not share the Gospel is criminal. To not bring the Gospel message to others can even be a sin – a sin of omission. It would be like finding the cure for cancer but not sharing it with others. We have something even more significant than a cure for cancer. We have the cure to sin, and guilt and the cure for hell and the hope for heaven. How much more urgently do we need to get this message out?” Continue reading “Allow Me to Pull an Andrew On You (Just Jesus Evangelistic Campaign #13)”
