      (Second Sunday of Ordinary Time) John 1: 35-42

      John was standing with two of
      his disciples,

      and as he watched Jesus walk by, he said,
      “Behold, the Lamb of God.”
      The two disciples heard what he said and
      followed Jesus.

      Jesus turned and saw them following him and
      said to them,

      “What are you looking for?”
      They said to him, “Rabbi” — which
      translated means Teacher —,

      “where are you staying?”
      He said to them, “Come, and you will see.”
      So they went and saw where Jesus was staying,
      and they stayed with him that day.
      It was about four in the afternoon.
      Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter,
      was one of the two who heard John and followed

      He first found his own brother Simon and told

      “We have found the Messiah” — which
      is translated Christ —.

      Then he brought him to Jesus.
      Jesus looked at him and said,
      “You are Simon the son of John;
      you will be called Cephas” — which is
      translated Peter.



      When two disciples were
      following Jesus, they asked Jesus to come to their place.

      Jesus asks and said to them
      ” What are you looking for?”   ” Come, and you will see”

      Why do God wants us to ask?   1) So we can talk to Him

      2) To ask  for what we need-
      Becareful and know what to ask for

      3) To prove that He can answer

      It is an invitation from God. Receive His
      Invitation and Make sure you send Him a Thank You notes!
