John 1:35-42 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his disciples; (36) And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God! (37) And the two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus. (38) Then Jesus turned, and saw them following, and saith unto them, What seek ye? They said unto him, Rabbi, (which is to say, being interpreted, Master,) where dwellest thou? (39) He saith unto them, Come and see. They came and saw where he dwelt, and abode with him that day: for it was about the tenth hour. (40) One of the two which heard John speak, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter's brother. (41) He first findeth his own brother Simon, and saith unto him, We have found the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ. (42) And he brought him to Jesus. And when Jesus beheld him, he said, Thou art Simon the son of Jona: thou shalt be called Cephas, which is by interpretation, A stone.

As these disciples see Jesus coming, they wonder and ask Jesus, Where do you stay? Where is your home? Jesus invites them to come and to follow him. Jesus is gathering the disciples which will follow Him. Notice how, when these men began to follow Jesus, they did not have any concern for the things they were leaving behind. They were not concerned with their houses or their jobs. Their very first concern was following Jesus and doing what Jesus wanted them to do.
