Scripture:
“Philip found Nathanael and told him, ‘We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.’

‘Nazareth! Can anything good come from there?’ Nathanael asked.

‘Come and see,’ said Philip.” ~John 1:45-46

Observation:
Nathanael is skeptical, but instead of trying to convince him, Philip merely said, “come and see.”

Application:
In my evangelistic efforts, am I trying to argue with people or convince them, or should I be more willing to just say, “see for yourself.” But, since Jesus isn’t physically walking around today, what am I asking them to see? A church service? A sermon? Christians serving? Read the Bible for themselves? All of the above? Should different people be invited to see different things according to their personality? I suspect so, since people have different values and would perceive certain things differently.

Prayer:
Father, what should I be inviting people to come and see? Where are You working most clearly today? I want to be able to invite people to see for themselves, but I am not sure what that means. Does “seeing” mean different things to different people? If so, please give me guidance as I am inviting others, so that I might know what avenue of “seeing” would most speak to them. Help me to grow Your kingdom by showing others the side of Your love and plan that would most appeal to them.
