Chapel Time – Talking About The Disciples – Andrew
Today during chapel time we learned about Andrew, the disciple. Andrew was chosen by Jesus early on; in fact he was one of the first four chosen. Andrew also served with John the Baptist along with John and it was through John that Andrew came to know Jesus.
- Andrew as a disciple
- Mark 1:15 and 1:17 – Jesus calls Andrew and John and Peter and James to follow Him
- Mark 3:13 – Jesus appoints the 12
- Mark 3:18 – the list of the 12
- Mark 1:29-31 – Jesus healing Peter’s Mother N Law
- Mark 13:3 – talking with Jesus about the end times
- John 1:35–40 records that, prior to becoming a follower of Jesus, Andrew was a disciple of John the Baptizer. Through John’s witness, Andrew was introduced to Jesus. Andrew subsequently introduced his brother, Simon Peter, to Jesus (John 1:41–42). In the Gospel of John, Andrew frequently appears in connection with Philip (e.g., John 6:5–9; 12:20–22). For example:
- John 1:44 notes they were from the same town (John 1:44; compare 12:21).
- In John 6:5–9, they interact with Jesus during the feeding of the 5,000 (John 6:1–15).
- In John 12:20–22 they serve as facilitators between some Greek people and Jesus during His final week (compare John 12:1).
- Andrew is the only person named Andrew in the New Testament.
- He is mentioned by name 12 times in Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John
Prayer Focus today:
Healing – Psalm 103
Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless his holy name!
2 Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all his benefits,
3 who forgives all your iniquity,
who heals all your diseases,
4 who redeems your life from the pit,
who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy,
5 who satisfied you with good
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s wings.
6 The Lord works righteousness
and justice for all who are oppressed.
7 He made known his ways to Moses,
his acts to the people of Israel.
8 The Lord is merciful and gracious,
slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.
9 kHe will not always chide,
nor will he keep his anger forever.
10 He does not deal with us according to our sins,
nor repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth,
so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;
12 as far as the east is from the west,
so far does he remove our transgressions from us.
13 As a father shows compassion to his children,
so the Lord shows compassion to those who fear him.
14 For he knows our frame;
he remembers that we are dust.
15 As for man, his days are like grass;
he flourishes like a flower of the field;
16 for the wind passes over it, and it is gone,
and its place knows it no more.
17 But the steadfast love of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him,
and his righteousness to children’s children,
18 to those who keep his covenant
and remember to do his commandments.
19 The Lord has established his throne in the heavens,
and his kingdom rules over all.
20 Bless the Lord, O you his angels,
you mighty ones who do his word,
obeying the voice of his word!
21 Bless the Lord, all his hosts,
his ministers, who do his will!
22 Bless the Lord, all his works,
in all places of his dominion.
Bless the Lord, O my soul!
