Where Else Could We Go?

Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away? Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.  And we believe and are sure that thou art that Christ, the Son of the living God.

John 6: 67-69

There may be times in our lives when we will want to just throw in the towel and quit.  There may be times when we don’t understand.  There may be times when we aren’t sure of the way.  There may be times when we are confused.  But, like Peter said, “to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.”.  Where else can we go if not to Jesus?  To whom can we turn if not to Jesus?  We can’t turn to ourselves.  We can’t “follow our heart”, as the Bible says that the heart is “deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked” (Jeremiah 17:9)  We can’t turn to the world.  We can’t turn to some other powerless “god” of this world.  Where else can we go?

Jesus said in John 14:6 “… I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”.  Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.  There is nothing else but Him.  We may have struggles, we may have hardships, we may have discouragements, and we may have our failures; but we can never leave Him.  He is everything.  Where else could we possibly go?

One response to this post.

  1. I have often considered Peter’s words when I feel confused or anxious or frustrated with my own failings.

    Thank you for the reminder to look to Jesus 🙂
