What Jesus Sees? (Part 2)

42 Then Andrew brought Simon to meet Jesus. Looking intently at Simon, Jesus said, “Your name is Simon, son of John—but you will be called Cephas” (which means “Peter”[n]).  - John 1: 42

The very first time Simon Peter met Jesus, Jesus looked at him intently. He kind of scanned him through. At present he was Simon, he was a fisherman, he was ordinary and tough to handle. But when Jesus saw him he not only saw the present Simon..but also saw the future Peter.

"Your name will be..."

Jesus now sees you and says your name is .....but follow me you will become..

Jesus sees the "future you" and call the "present you" to come become the "real you" whom he intended to be..

Jesus was patient with Simon as he saw what he could become in the kingdom of God...He is patient with you now because he sees what you could become in the kingdom of God in the future....

Let your journey continue from "your name is...." to "you will be..." as you follow Jesus daily...
