It's Simple: Bring People to Jesus...

What do you know about Andrew the apostle? Not much, probably. He is mentioned several times in the New Testament but is usually mostly in the background. However, there is one unique thing about Andrew. He was always bringing people to Jesus. He brought his brother Peter (John 1:40). He brought the boy who had 5 loaves and 2 fish (John 6:8). And, along with Philip, he brought a group of Greeks who were seeking to see Jesus (John 12:20-22). What a great thing to be remembered for: simply bringing people to Jesus! (Idea from H. Blackaby writings)

I wonder what they will put on my tombstone? Or what will I be remembered for? I honestly am not too worried about it. But wouldn't it be nice if our obituaries one day simply said...

"He/She brought people to Jesus"

We do a lot of "things" in our life but there is none more impactful and lasting than bringing people to Jesus.
