Jn 6:66-69 - As a result of this many of His disciples withdrew and were not walking with Him anymore. So Jesus said to the twelve, "You do not want to go away also, do you?" Simon Peter answered Him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life. "We have believed and have come to know that You are the Holy One of God." NASU
They gave up. They quit. They walked away because they didn't understand Jesus' lesson.
When Jesus asks the twelve if they want to go away also, I absolutely love Peter's reply, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life."
If you are in the ministry or have been in the ministry I don't need to say anymore. You totally understand what I am saying. People will walk out on you exactly like they did Jesus. They will talk about you, they will slander you, and the good Lord knows they are going to misquote you.
Can you imagine how Jesus was misquoted after telling His disciples they were going to have to eat His flesh and drink His blood (John 6:53-56)?
March 2, 2020, will be my spiritual birthday and I will be 45 years old in the LORD. I am closer to my faith becoming a reality and I am not going to abandon Him now.
Forty-five years He has been watching over me. Yeah, you could say I have a friend in Jesus.
My faith, in the Word of God, informs me Jesus is the Son of God. I know this about Him He wants us to be with Him in Heaven for all eternity and I want that as well.
If you are reading this Pump Up and you have never been immersed (aka - baptized) into Christ please consider being obedient to His Word.
Acts 2:38 - Peter said to them, "Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."
Yes, I am a follower of Jesus Christ because He has to Words of Eternal Life.
Think About This:
The Word of God is not simply for information but for our transformation.
