The Jesus of John’s Gospel invites fisherfolk to follow him with these words, “Come and see”. It’s not a specific, detailed invitation – no vision, no mission statement, and no plan with goals to achieve. Those young ones were being invited to a new life in which they would experience relationships, wonders, signs, suffering and death itself before coming to resurrection.
This invitation to “Come and see” extends to you and me. The question is can we and do we accept the invitation fully?
