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.
John had followers or students known as disciples. These men listened and learned.
Two of these were with John when Jesus passed by again. John indicated the two should learn more about Him.
One of them was Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter.
Although the other is not mentioned by name, I believe it is John the son of Zebedee, brother of James, and author of this Gospel account.
All of us should point to Jesus and declare Him the Lamb of God, the Messiah, the Savior of the world, and the only way to the Father.
It also shows self-importance.
John is sending his followers to Jesus. After all, he will say in a future chapter, “He must increase, but I must decrease.” John 3:30
It’s not about us, it’s about God and each of us in Him!
For me, it’s not about how many attend my church as compared to the one down the road. It is about how I teach and preach God’s message to those that come to the church I pastor. It’s about how I live before God every day.
It’s about how well I represent Him.
