John “the Baptist” publicly announced the identity of Jesus as the “Messiah”, the predicted Savior. Andrew had been following John. He heard John’s statement and in turn grabbed his brother Peter so that they could follow Jesus together. Philip was from Andrew & Peter’s hometown. He grabbed Nathanael and they also followed Jesus. God cares about our personal relationships. As we receive the love of Jesus we should be motivated to share it with the people in our lives.
