Today's Verse: John 1:41-42

Wednesday, June 27, 2007

The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, "We have found the Messiah!"
— John 1:41-42

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Andrew was always bringing people to Jesus. Except for that fact, and that he was Simon Peter's brother and a fisherman, that's about all we know about this apostle. But isn't that the kind of reputation you would like to have!

My Prayer...

God of all salvation, please bless me as I seek to share Jesus with my friends and family. Please help me earn the reputation that Andrew had, someone who is always leading others to Christ. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
