A-1 - Encouraged by What You Read?

Through the years, when my two boys have been excited about a fort they've built in the back yard or a Lego creation they've assembled in their room, they have often said, "Come with us, Daddy, we want to show you something."  According to Mike Silva, today's guest on Footsteps, his team uses this same approach when it comes to his evangelistic festivals.  Mike says, "Our message to people when we go into cities is simply this: 'come and see' ... when they get there, our message is: 'follow me.'"  Mike's game plan may be simple, but it's biblical!  Check out these verses in the first chapter of John: 

The next day Jesus decided to go to Galilee.  He found Philip and said to him, “Follow me.”  Now Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.  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.” Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?”  Philip said to him, “Come and see.” Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and said of him, “Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom there is no deceit!”  Nathanael said to him, “How do you know me?”  Jesus answered him, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you.”  Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God!  You are the King of Israel!”  Jesus answered him, “Because I said to you, ‘I saw you under the fig tree,’ do you believe?  You will see greater things than these.”  And he said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”  (John 1:43-51, ESV)
