He said to them, “Come and see.” (John 1:39a)

Jesus’ call in our lives has a double impact. On the one hand, we are called away from the life we once knew, the life that was once comfortable for us. On the other hand, we are also called to a new life, a new adventure of discipleship. For those first disciples – and for us – the emphasis is the call is the forward-looking future. “Come and see,” Jesus says (v. 39a); leave behind what was once comfortable and take on something new, something unknown, something daunting, something exciting. “Come and see,” Jesus said to Andrew and his friend . . . and the two followed Jesus into their new, unknown future. “Come and see,” Jesus calls to us . . . To where, to whom, will Christ lead us?              – rc
