Festival Question: What can we learn from Jesus inviting his first disciples to follow him? (John 1:35-42)

Wyatt’s Answer:
“We can learn a lot about the Gospel in John 1:35-42. The first thing I learn is that Andrew and Simon were just ordinary men, but God still had a plan for them. I also learned how Andrew followed Jesus right away and spent all day with Him. This teaches me that I can know Jesus by following Him and spending time with Him. I can pray, worship and read the Bible to know Jesus more.

The next thing I learned is the way Andrew told his brother Simon about Jesus being the Messiah and brought him to meet Jesus. I think Andrew wanted Simon to know Jesus because his brother was his best friend. I can tell people I love about Jesus, invite them to church and AWANAS.

The last thing this passage taught me is when we believe in Jesus as our Savior, He changes us. Jesus gave Simon a new name: Peter ‘Rock.’ Jesus knew who Simon was, but He also knew the great plan for who Peter would become. The Bible promises us when the Holy Spirit lives in our hearts that He makes us a new creation (II Corinthians 5:17).”
