“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 6:66-68




…many of Jesus’ followers turned back

and would not go with Him any more.

So He asked the twelve disciples,

“And you – would you also like to leave?”


Simon Peter answered Him,

“Lord, to whom would we go?

You have the words that give eternal life.”


– John 6:66-68 (GNT)






Today, perhaps even more than ever,

many of Jesus’ followers appear to be moving away from Him

and from His teachings.



Basically because we tend to be selfish

and that makes us desire instant gratification and solutions,

which are, invariably, always short-lived.


Jesus, on the other hand,

teaches us to accept sacrifice and suffering now,

but promises us eternal fulfilment.


This fulfilment – this new life, which only Jesus gives –

in fact commences from the moment we recognise Him as Lord;

from the moment we truly accept Him in our lives as the Way, the Truth and the Life.






Lord, Giver of life, to whom shall I go?
