In John 6 Jesus feeds 5,000 people displaying His power, HE walks on water displaying His power specifically before His 12 disciples, HE speaks of Himself as the bread of life, teaches that the Father gives people to Him and those who are given come to Him. The Jews who had been apart of His feeding of the 5,000 (possibly 20,000 with women and children) misunderstand His teaching and thought it to be too hard, therefore many of them (majority) quit following Him. Jesus ask the 12 if they were going to leave as well to which Peter responded, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words to eternal life. We have believed and have come to know that You are the Holy One of God.” Peter understood who Jesus was and that it was through Him and His words that eternal life would come. Unfortunately many today who claim to be followers of Christ, listen to the words of many others who do not have eternal life. Lord, You have the words of eternal life, I have no place else to go. Help me only listen to your words and evaluate everything through Your words.
