And Simon and they that were with him followed after him.…
What the disciples said in their wondering delight, shall one day be literally true — all men will be in search of the Saviour of the world. In the first instance the Saviour sought all men, and in the second all men will seek the Saviour. "We love Him because He first loved us."
(J. Parker, D. D.)
