Two of John the Baptist’s disciples were present when John proclaimed Jesus to be the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world and that Jesus is the chosen one.. One of them was Andrew, Peter’s brother. Andrew and his companion heard what John the Baptist said and started to follow Jesus. Jesus took note and asked them what they wanted. The conversation is in John chapter 1.
When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus. Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, “What do you want?”
They said, “Rabbi” (which means “Teacher”), “where are you staying?”
“Come,” he replied, “and you will see.”
Come and see. Jesus invited them to continue to follow him. They had no idea of what was ahead of them, the adventures, the miracles, the dismay as Jesus was crucified, the exaltation as Jesus defeated death, and the problems they would encounter serving Jesus. They chose to follow him.
Saying wherever you lead is something we may experience, or the desire to say, when we have encounters with Jesus in life. The test of that is whether we still say-wherever you lead- when we are in the midst of difficulty.
Wherever you may lead is a continual decision we make. We might falter at times under the pressures of this life, but we can be refreshed and continue on. The one thing we can know for sure is that choosing to follow Jesus will ultimately lead to blessing.
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
