"Come and see!" Philip to Bartholomew

In today's Gospel (John 1:45-51), Philip tells Bartholomew (aka Nathanael) about finding Jesus, the Christ, the one spoken of by the prophets. Rather than waste time arguing with Bartholomew about Jesus' home town -- "Can anything good come from Nazareth?" -- Philip simply says: "Come and see." And that's all it took.

I've been trying to think of ways to get people to "come and see" Jesus and I have to admit it...I'm stumped. Too bad. It would've made a great post!

Can you help me out with ideas or experiences you've had in bringing people to Jesus?
