Bring them to Jesus in your way
'The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and...brought him to Jesus.' John 1:41-42 NIV
The apostle Andrew was passionate about bringing people to Christ. First he brought his brother, Peter. Then he brought a boy with five loaves and two fish to Jesus (see John, chapter 6). And in John 12, he was involved in introducing a group of Greeks to Christ.
Jesus said to his disciples: 'Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all I have commanded you' (Matthew 28:19-20 NIV). And we're called to do the same. Telling others about our faith could make us feel anxious. But Jesus assures us: 'And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age' (Matthew 28:20 NIV). We may not be anxious about evangelising; we may just 'not get round to it'. When Jesus called Andrew to follow him, the Bible tell us that before Andrew did anything else he found his brother and took him to Jesus. When we experience something new about God, or have an answer to prayer, do we make telling others a priority?
Telling others about Jesus is powerful! Andrew brought Peter to Christ, and Peter ended up bringing multitudes to Christ. The person we share our faith with today, or bring to church next Sunday, may be used by God to do things we never dreamed possible.
So what now? So, bring people to Jesus, just by being yourself! And let Jesus show them who he is.
