Jesus turned and saw them following and said to them, “What are you seeking?” And they said to him, “Rabbi” (which means Teacher), “where are you staying?” He said to them, “Come and you will see.” So they came and saw where he was staying, and they stayed with him that day, for it was about the tenth hour. One of the two who heard John speak and followed Jesus was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. He first found his own brother Simon and said to him, “We have found the Messiah” (which means Christ). He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, “You are Simon the son of John. You shall be called Cephas” (which means Peter). John 1:38-42
Networking is how those in business survive. Some of the greatest assets owned by an individual are not financial, they are relational. Phrases like, "It's not what you know, but who you know," are born out of this sentiment. Whether you're stepping into the job world for the first time or trying a new hobby, you instinctively know that you are one introduction away from great things. Now imagine thinking about the Kingdom of God this way.
Andrew followed Jesus and for an unknown reason, felt compelled to introduce his brother Simon Peter. Had that introduction not been made, just think about the deficit in the Kingdom of God! A good leader will make key introductions, even if it means taking a back seat to what unfolds next. If it was not for Andrew's introduction, who would have walked on water beside Jesus? Or what man would be the rock with which the church was founded on? Do not neglect to introduce men to Jesus. There may be a "Peter" in your very midst.
