Verse of the day - John 6:68

  • Simon Peter answered him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life." John 6:68

    When Jesus asked his disciples if they would leave him like everyone else had, Peter's response is powerful and great. He knew where truth originated! He had heard the voice on the Mountain saying, "This is my Son, whom I love; listen to him!" He had seen Jesus' words change reality and destroy barriers to God's love and truth. Indeed, he knew that there was no one else who had the words of eternal life! So who are you listening to?

    It means that Jesus requires us to be faithful, when we truly believe that He is the Messiah, and we 've confessed Him as Lord and Savior, for where or to whom can we turn to but Christ Jesus, and follow Him by the leading of the Blessed Holy Spirit, to attain or have eternal life? No one else but Him, the incarnate Son Of God.

    Almighty God, thank you for making Jesus so accessible to me. Jesus helps me see the full extent of your love. Jesus helps me more completely understand your message about wanting to redeem me and make me your own. I want to always come to Jesus for truth, grace, refreshment, and hope.

    There is no other one that I want to be my Lord except my crucified Savior, Jesus. Today, Father, gently confront me in those areas where I have yet to fully yield to your Son's lordship in my life. In the precious name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
