First Disciples Meeting Jesus – Exercise of Hearing The Most Important Question In Life

Step In

“As the first disciples meeting Jesus” 


 The next day John was there again with two of his disciples. 36 When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, “Look, the Lamb of God!”

37 When the two disciples heard him say this, they followed Jesus.38 Turning around, Jesus saw them following and asked, “What do you want?”

They said, “Rabbi” (which means “Teacher”), “where are you staying?”

39 “Come,” he replied, “and you will see.”

So they went and saw where he was staying, and they spent that day with him. It was about four in the afternoon.

 (John 1:35-39)


  • If you were one of the disciples, being pointed to Jesus, how do you feel?
  • If you were John the Baptist, does pointing your own followers to Jesus and have them follow Him make you insecure? What if your life is to point others to Jesus instead of yourself?
  • As you approach Jesus, and the first question he asked you is “What do you want” (or What are you looking for?) What will your answer be?
  • What do you really want or desire in your life?

Thank Him

(For the most important first question He is asking us)

Ask Him

(For what I truly desire in my life)

Review Your Day

(When was it that I feel near to Jesus and when was I far?)

Turn Back

(From my way towards God’s own way)

Start Again

(With Jesus spending the day with me, how can I restart my day again)

  1. Although I am a Buddhist and has no prior knowledge on Christianism, it seems to me that a Christian also advocates gratefulness, which shares the same principles/values just like a Buddhist. Anyway, it helps me to understand other religion better. Thanks a lot.
