Jesus Appoints Nathaniel (Bartholomew)


Extract

When Jesus saw Nathaniel coming towards him he exclaimed, “Look, a true Israelite in whom there is no deceit!”

When Nathaniel asked Jesus how he knew him, Jesus replied, “Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig-tree, I saw you”. (John 1:47-48)

ThoughtsThought

Jesus knows the secrets that lie within our hearts. Just as he knew Nathaniel was an upright and holy man, he knows my strengths and weaknesses; I cannot hide!
