Lord, to whom would we go?

Many deserted Jesus for speaking truth...Jesus turned to the Twelve and wanted to know if they were going to leave Him too? Peter replied, Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words to give eternal life. We really see this as no option, don't we? and yet the other option is picked so many times...

It seems to obvious and yet...

People didn't understand, so they deserted. Many don't understand today, so they isn't for us to understand ~ it is about believing God! Faith is the answer and never will we have all the answers and nor do we need to! We don't understand so many things about our health and yet we trust our Doctors, some we know, some we don't and yet we trust...our lawyers...our pharmacists...people that cook our food...We trust these people and yet we question God!

Indeed Lord, we believe and know that you are the Holy One of God! The Way to God is You! Thank you Jesus for saving me....

Sweet blessings,

Debbie, I wrote out to the side of Peter's words "beautiful." In John 6: 66, we read that many of Jesus' disciples turned away and deserted him. Jesus had just asked the Twelve, "Are you also going to leave?" And Peter replies with that beautiful answer.

I have grown to love Peter.
Until I had read the Bible through last year, when I thought of Peter, I thought of his famous denials of Christ, but I feel as though I know his heart now.

Yes, I say with Peter, "We believe and we know you are the Holy One of God."
