Do You Want To Go Away As Well?

do you want to leave

Jesus the life-giver has a question for you:

So Jesus asked…, “Do you want to go away as well?” (John 6:67)

Many people follow Jesus in order to have their needs met; needs that are typically defined for Jesus, not by Jesus. So, when the Lord fails to meet their demands they blame Him and leave. On one such occasion, after many of Jesus’ followers deserted Him, He asked the Twelve if they too were going to leave. Predictably, Peter spoke up saying, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life…” Our greatest need is the forgiveness of our sins, not more bread on the table. When the crowds thin and people leave how will you respond to the Savior’s question? There are only two answers, either you will accept Him for who He is and what He offers, or you will reject Him. So today, choose life; choose Christ.

For the whole story read John 6:1-71

One thought on “Do You Want To Go Away As Well?

  1. Jesús el dador de vida tiene una pregunta para ti.

    “Dijo entonces Jesús a los doce: ¿Queréis acaso iros también vosotros?” Juan 6:67

    Mucha gente sigue a Jesús para satisfacer sus necesidades. Necesidades que típicamente se defines para Jesús y no por medio de Jesús. Así, cuando el Señor no satisface sus demandas Le echan la culpa a Él y se van. En tal ocasión, después de que muchos de los seguidores de Jesús le abandonaron, Él preguntó a los doce si ellos también iban a abandonarle. Como era de esperar, Pedro habló diciendo, “Señor, ¿a quién iremos? Tú tienes palabras de vida eterna…” Nuestra necesidad predominante es el perdón de nuestros pecados, nada de más pan en la mesa. Cuando la multitud se escasea y la gente sale, ¿cómo responderás tú a la pregunta del Salvador? Solo hay dos respuestas, o Le aceptarás por quien es y lo que Él ofrece, o Le rechazarás.
