Come and see

John 1:35-42
The First Disciples of Jesus
The next day John again was standing with two of his disciples, and as he watched Jesus walk by, he exclaimed, “Look, here is the Lamb of God!” The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus. When Jesus turned and saw them following, he said to them, “What are you looking for?” They said to him, “Rabbi” (which translated means Teacher), “where are you staying?” He said to them, “Come and see.” They came and saw where he was staying, and they remained with him that day. It was about four o’clock in the afternoon. One of the two who heard John speak and followed him was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. He first found his brother Simon and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which is translated Anointed). He brought Simon to Jesus, who looked at him and said, “You are Simon son of John. You are to be called Cephas” (which is translated Peter).

Come and see - 
the curiosity of a seeker
Come and see -
the invitation of one smitten
Come and see -
the catalyst
that set in motion
a whole world
of adventure and intrigue
of excitement and trepidation
of unanticipated joy
and heart wrenching sorrow
Come and see
O that we, today,
were as spontaneous,
as inviting
as inclusive
as willing to risk
as Andrew.
To follow a summons
and recruit others
to venture out with us.
Come and see
