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

TODAY’S WORD…

.

…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)

REFLECTION…

.

Today, perhaps even more than ever,

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

and from His teachings.

.

Why?

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.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

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