Where Are You Staying?

35 The next day John was there again with two of his disciples. 36 When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, “Look, the Lamb of God!”

37 When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus. 38 Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, “What do you want?”

They said, “Rabbi” (which means “Teacher”), “where are you staying?”

39 “Come,” he replied, “and you will see.”

So they went and saw where he was staying, and they spent that day with him. It was about four in the afternoon.

John 1:35-39

After John made the big reveal, two of his disciples followed him and began hanging out with Him. It took a lot of faith and courage to approach Him as they did. The history books are now filled with their exploits and miracles.

Was it the wild man’s proclamation that Jesus was the Lamb of God that prompted their following. We know that God led them to this point and that they would me two of the first few that turn the world upside down for His sake.

The question they asked, though, is even more curious to me. They just wanted to put him up for the night if he didn’t have a place to stay. Jesus didn’t outright say he had no home, but to follow Him. They did and we’re able to read about it 2000 years later.

Jesus still calls those wandering to follow Him. They may be fishermen, mechanics, doctors, entrepreneurs, teachers, or Uber drivers. Don’t discount them because of what they do for a living. Instead, be curious about them and get to know them for they are our brothers and sisters.
