What did John the Baptist mean by “Behold the Lamb of God”?
Why did Jesus say, “Come and you will see” and “Follow me”? And why is that crucial to discipleship?

Experience and Encounter
Make an “oikos map”. Draw a circle with your name in the middle. Draw a few lines with other circles branching out from your name to make a map of those you are praying for who have yet to follow Jesus and who you desire to help follow Jesus as disciples. (Oikos Map – video)
Lord’s Supper (Communion)
Practice and Obey
Spend time praying for people on your Oikos Prayer Map. Listen for what Jesus may tell you to do. Consider Praying daily at noon for the people on your Oikos Prayer Map. Consider using the 24-7 Prayer App “Inner Room” (https://innerroom.app/) to add these people to your prayer list with specific prayer points and set reminders to pray for them.
