Philip found Nathanael and said to him, “We have found him of whom Moses in the Law and also the prophets wrote, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.” 46 Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see” (Jn 1:45–46).
“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, 46 who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it” (Mt 13:45–46).
“But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us” (2 Co 4:7).
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek” (Ro 1:16).
“And have mercy on those who doubt; save others by snatching them out of the fire” (Jude 22–23).
Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!” (Jn 1:49).
Philip encounters Christ and immediately seeks out Nathaniel and tells him that they have found the “One” that Moses and the prophets wrote about. Philip has a negative response, but Philip challenges him. Tis sermon is about the challenge made by Philip, and is the challenge that we too should be making to those we encounter, especially that one person that you’ve been praying about. This is part 4 of CTW’s “Who’s Your One” series. Please share it with other Christ followers – it is “in season.” Tune in…
