DIG for Friday the 19th of August…..what do you need, come see what I have, I know you, follow me…..John 1 v 43

After His baptism and before His ministry Jesus met His disciples.

It struck me today what He said to them in this passage of Scripture, and also the order He said it.

First He asked them what they were looking for (John 1 v 38).

Then He told them to come and see what he had (John 1 v 39).

He then spoke to Simon, telling him who he was and gave him a new name, or new identity (John 1 v 42).

Finally He asks then to follow Him (John 1 v 43).

This is a wonderful sequence of events.

Jesus knows what we need and He can provide it all and in abundance (John 10 v 10).

If we come to him we get a new name and a new identify; we go from sinner to saint (Ephesians 4 v 24)

Then all we have to do after that is follow Him.


Jesus wants to show us what He has for us, knowing our every need, before we even do.

He wants to give every man a new name and new identity.

All He wants in return is for us to follow Him.

Now that sounds like a good deal to me!

Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord for the finished work of Jesus and thank you that I am now a saint”.

John 1 v 43…..The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me
