One can always wonder (or even worry) about making the right decision when something new comes our way. Change is not always at the top of our list in life when we are comfortable.
One thing that I can admire about Andrew is that while he may have been comfortable following John as a disciple he took on change head first when he met Jesus (John 1:35-40). John had been preaching about a “Greater One” than him and he had publicly declared Jesus to be the “Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world” (John 1:29) and Andrew took his trusted teacher’s comments seriously.
Andrew would eventually have to face more change in his life because of his decision to follow Jesus and no doubt it was never a change that he regretted.
As followers of the Christ we are challenged to meet change in our life with a positive attitude. I’m not talking about the changing of jobs or something trivial like buying a new vehicle; but rather the change that we will confront solely because, like Andrew, we decided to follow Jesus (Luke 9:23,24).
Change may not always be fun but it will definitely be worth it if the change is to become more like Jesus (Luke 14:16-33 & Matthew 19:27-30). Only then will we go from change for the better to change for the best.
