Devotional – Andrew

[Andrew] brought [Simon] to Jesus… John 1:42 ESV

 Andrew… said to [Jesus] there is a boy here who has barley loaves and two fish… John 6:8,9 ESV

Some Greeks… asked Philip… ‘Sir, we wish to see Jesus.’ Philip went and told Andrew; Andrew and Philip went and told Jesus. John 12:20-22 ESV

We only read of Andrew a few times in the Gospels.  But, when we do read of him he is always bringing someone to Jesus. First we read of Andrew bringing his family to Jesus… specifically his brother Simon whom the Lord would latter call Peter.

Next, he brings to Jesus a young fellow who was willing to give all that he had – a few barley loaves of bread and two fish.
Lastly, he brought foreigners to Christ.  When some Greeks asked Philip to see Jesus, Philip went and consulted with Andrew! Certainly Andrew would know what to do!

Andrew was never in the limelight.  He was content to work quietly in the background as an evangelist.  In the same way, you do not need to be in the spotlight to do great things for Jesus Christ.

Who will you bring to Jesus today?
