Whether you’ve been a Christian for a while or jus getting started, life’s expectations, disappointments or rollercoaster ride of emotions will somehow get us to question our beliefs in God. It may strengthen our walk with the Lord or make us stray away from Him. But when we choose the latter, we discover at the end that He was the only way to a better life.
In the given passage, the followers of Jesus Christ walked away from Him when they realized how much of an offer he was making. He claimed to be the Son of God and claimed to offer eternal life. The Jews were all accustomed into thinking that the prophesied Messiah would be that of a typical King, of great outward appearance. They never expected a carpenter to declare to be the Christ. When Jesus began to say that He was the bread will never make them hungry and the blood that will save them, it was enough for some of the disciples to bail (vs.60 & 66). But when Jesus turned to the rest of the disciples to ask if they too will leave, Simon Peter replies, “To whom shall I go?”
Jesus is the truth, the way, and the life. He has promised not only a life of abundance but also a life of eternity in heaven. When life gets us asking questions, consider the choices before you and ask yourself, “To whom shall I go?”
- Jesus Christ is our Savior. He died to set us free and to save us. Thank Him and accept His offer if you haven’t done yet.
