Come and See (John 1:43-51)
Due to some technical difficulties, the audio portion will be added later in the week. Until then, you can always read the manuscript below. Be on the lookout for the audio to be posted on social media!
There are some things that just don’t make sense until you actually have to live them out. Christianity happens to be one of them. There isn’t any way to dumb it down so that it will make sense.
Following Jesus is difficult. It requires us to turn the other cheek, to love our enemies, and to pray for those who persecute us—which, in a world filled with violence, abusive authority, bureaucratic indifference, and people bent on blowing up cars and flying planes into buildings, can seem almost impossible.
Moreover, following Jesus requires not only that we love our enemies, but that we extend that love to people who don’t quite rise to the level of enemy, but who are nevertheless different enough from us that we’re constantly tempted to think of them as other, as those people.
