Sharing Good News


John 1

Have you ever made a purchase or started a new hobby and loved it so much that you couldn’t help but tell someone about it? You became so familiar, got involved and built such a relationship with it that it just overflowed out of you.

Whether it is a new gym, a new family member or any type of good news, when we are excited about something, we can’t help but tell others! Social media was created just to make it easier for us to tell others what is on our mind. It seems like we were all created to share good news.

John gives us two examples of people who couldn’t help but tell someone about Jesus and bring them to Him (see vs. 40-51). Jesus found Andrew and then Andrew found his brother Simon. Then Jesus found Philip and Philip found Nathanael. Andrew and Philip, after being found by Jesus, couldn’t help but go find someone else. In other words, John is showing us that “Found People Find People.” Once you have been found by Jesus, His love compels you to go out, find others and bring them to Him. When Jesus changes your life, you can’t help but tell someone else.


  • What can we learn about Jesus from this passage?
  • What was it like for you when you met Jesus for the first time?
  • Who is the one person in your life that you want to meet Jesus? Pray for that person now. Do whatever it takes to invite them to church.
