“Come and See”

Jesus’ invitation to his potential disciples in John reveals his understanding of humanity and one of the ways in which he attracts followers.  It is so simple; just, “Come and See.” It takes only the commitment to answer his “Come”; after that, it is up to us to see and make a decision about what we make of this Jesus and how we want to let it affect our lives. Jesus understands that we make decisions after we experience some realm of God—whether it is seeing something miraculous, whether it is sensing something different, or whether it is a longing and a hope for a different story. His invitation: “Come and See” should be intrinsically woven into our understandings of our mission praxis.  We do not manipulate people, we do not coerce people, we do not convince people of Jesus…we merely invite, “Come and See.”
