Some Labor Quietly

He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ. (John 1:41)
I want you to think about Andrew, Peter’s brother.
• Andrew brings Simon Peter to Jesus.  (John 1:40-42)
• Andrew brings a little boy with 5 crackers and 2 fish to Jesus. (John 6:8-9)
• Andrew brings some Greek men to meet Jesus. (John 12:20-22)
Andrew was always involved in bringing people to meet Jesus. Yet in all of the Gospels, it is only in John that we learn anything about him other than being Peter’s brother.
Why is that?
It is because Andrew thought more of the work to be done than who was in charge.
It’s sad to say, but some people don’t play in the band unless they can beat the big drum—
James and John certainly had a problem with that, not Andrew.
Andrew is the picture of all those who labor quietly in humble places, not serving as men-pleasers but serving to please God in Christ.
Andrew was deeply religious, but he was more magnetic than he was electric.
He was better suited for the quiet walks of life than on the busy streets of the city.
God uses people like Andrew, like you, people who quietly and obscurely bring others to Christ…because God knows that it sometimes takes an Andrew to reach a Peter.
So allow me to say, from all of us ‘faulting Peters’ of the world – thank you.
Your prayer today, “God, help me be more like Andrew. More magnetic than electric.
Have a beautiful and uplifting day in The Lord!
