Propose one wrong and one right application for the pericope John 1:43-51.

Explain why you believe the application is either right or wrong.

Wrong Application from v. 43: Man came to follow Jesus. Man has the will to follow Christ and His Word. This here makes man the center of the text and allows room for man to decide not only in the text but decide always weather he can follow Christ or not. Free will.

Right Application from v. 43: Christ Word was enough and is enough to change man’s life and man’s heart in following Christ. This is right in the fact that Christ is center, the gospel is centered, in that His words form his mouth, and his word that man has today is enough to bring sinners to their knees and repent and follow Christ. Irresistible Grace .
