The day following Jesus would go forth into Galilee, and findeth Philip, and saith unto him, Follow me. Now Philip was of Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter. Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph. And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see (John 1:43-46).
Today's Morsel: Do you ever look at people and in your mind say, "There is no help for that person, he/she is a lost cause?" What we sometime sees may not be what Jesus sees. When Samuel went to anoint the new king of Israel, he was looking at outward stature. But God told him that God doesn't look on the outward, God sees a man's heart. When Phillip told Nathanael that they had found Jesus of Nazareth whom Moses and the Prophets did write about, Phillip was probably somewhat shocked because the Messiah was to be born in Bethlehem Judah and come forth from there and not Nazareth. And so Nathanael's comment to Philip was really how can light come out of darkness? And Phillip said, "Come and see." If you really want to see how Jesus can transform a person from darkness to light, come and see. I'm a living witness of how God can take a person who walked and lived in darkness and transform them into a person of light. With man things are impossible, but with God, Jesus said, all things are possible. Jesus said, "I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life" (John 8:12). When Jesus created the heavens and the earth, the first thing he said was, "Let there be light." No matter where people are from, there is always something good there. We just have to look for it.
Sing: Only believe! Only believe! All things are possible, if you only believe.
