“Come and you’ll see,” He replied. So they went and saw where He was staying, and they stayed with Him that day. It was about 10 in the morning.
This is the standing invitation of Jesus. Come and see. Still today He invites us to follow Him and investigate His claims and His call. He invites us to His home so that we might see and understand Who He is. He invites us to walk with Him to the place where He resides. His home will be ours. More specifically, for those who will follow him, He will be our home. To walk with Jesus is to be Home since true Home is found only in the presence of God. He is our Home. He is the Presence of God. The invitation to ‘come and see’ is Jesus’ invitation for us to lay down our lives and take up our eternal residence with Him. There is no greater invitation.
