“One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter’s brother. He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ. And he brought him to Jesus...”
Andrew was not well known; but he wasn’t looking for fame. He was quiet; but he was bold. Andrew was a fisherman who left his nets to follow Jesus and fish for men. Andrew was always referred to as Simon Peter’s brother.
As his name means, he was strong and courageous, a warrior; maybe not in word, but definitely in deed. He may not have been known as a great preacher, or written any books, but he brought people to Jesus.
The first person Andrew brought to Jesus was his brother, Simon Peter. He brought the preacher of Pentacost to Jesus. Thousands upon thousands came to know the Lord… because Andrew was a soul winner.
After hearing of all the miracles that Jesus did, a great multitude began to follow Him. Jesus asked Philip where they could buy some bread to feed the people, knowing that He would be performing a miracle in order to feed 5,000 men plus women and children. Andrew spoke up about a lad that he knew there. He brought the boy, along with his five loaves and two fishes to Jesus, and the rest is Biblical history.
From Andrew we can learn the importance of bringing others to Jesus.
Who have you brought to Jesus?
What could Jesus do through you bringing someone to Him?
Only time will tell… our job is to go and tell.
