I Guess I Should Come And See

Today, we hear two different men respond to two different questions with “Come and See.” The first question was asked by some of John the Forerunner’s disciples about where the Lord was staying and He responded”Come and see.” And the second question was asked by Nathaniel of Philip about whether any good thing can come from Nazareth and Philip responded “Come and see.”

The truth is we are never going to come to grips with the reality of our faith without actually risking encountering it in it’s fullness. No amount of reading about it or contemplating it is ever going to be enough to see the fruits of practiced faith in our lives. We have to actually take the risk of practicing our faith, loving our Lord, and living our beliefs if we are ever going to “know” this eternal relationship!

So, I guess today is the day to “Come and see!”

  1. Amen, Father. The primacy of experience. Scripture and tradition are indispensable tools for validating and guiding authentic Christian experience, but they cannot substitute for the experience itself. They are the record of the experiences of other saints. I believe Christianity must be lived and experienced by every believer individually, otherwise it’s just dead religion.
