And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.
By this example we are taught from the first rudiment of the Church —
1. That we ought to draw such a relish for Christ as will excite our desire for profit.
2. That we ought not to be satisfied with a mere passing look, but that we ought to seek Christ's dwelling that He may receive us as guests. For there are many who smell the gospel at a distance only, and thus allow Christ suddenly to disappear, and all that they have learned concerning Him to pass away.
