The next day John was there again with two of his disciples. When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, “Look, the Lamb of God!”
When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus. Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, “What do you want?” They said, “Rabbi” (which means Teacher), “where are you staying?” “Come,” he replied, “and you will see.” So they went and saw where he was staying, and spent that day with him. It was about the tenth hour.

Observation: What is grabbing my attention most in this story is how John the Baptist is simply helping his friends see where Jesus is. He didn’t feel the pressure to do any more than to point them to Jesus. Jesus is already at work in my friends lives. Jesus is already saying, “come and see.”
Action: This week as I am present to my friends, I am listening to their story to see how it already points to Jesus. If I am invited to, I will share my story to help point to Jesus.
