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
