Andrew

First a disciple of John, the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Andrew was an explorer, eager to hear the Word of the Lord wherever he might hear it. When John pointed his disciples to Jesus, Andrew upgraded his mission.

Jesus greets Andrew and his friend with a question, His very first question recorded in the Scriptures: “What do you want?” It’s a great question and one Jesus asked people often.

Andrew had the first answer: he wanted to be where Jesus was.

Andrew quickly recruited his brother, who became one of the better-known of all the apostles.

Again, the next day, John stood with two of his disciples. And looking at Jesus as He walked, he said, “Behold the Lamb of God!”

The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.

Then Jesus turned, and seeing them following, said to them, “What do you seek?

They said to Him, “Rabbi” (which is to say, when translated, Teacher), “where are You staying?”

He said to them, “Come and see.”

They came and saw where He was staying, and remained with Him that day (now it was about the tenth hour).

One of the two who heard John speak, and followed Him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. He first found his own brother Simon, and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which is translated, the Christ). And he brought him to Jesus.

Now when Jesus looked at him, He said, “You are Simon the son of Jonah. You shall be called Cephas” (which is translated, A Stone).
John 1:35-42

Have excitement for the Lord. If you know Him, one day we will get to be where He is and stay with Him forever.
