Go and Tell

Reading through the beginning of John's gospel I was struck again by how eager the disciples are to tell people about Christ.

First Andrew in Chapter 1 verse 41 The first thing Andrew did was to find his brother Simon and tell him, "We have found the Messiah" (that is, the Christ). And he brought him to Jesus.
Then Phillip in verse 45; Philip found Nathanael and told him, "We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph."

Am I like that? Am I so excited about who God is, so sure that knowing him is what people need that I can't keep it in? That I drag people to meet him even if they are unsure (verse 46)?
