“Then Jesus said to the twelve, “Do you also want to go away?” But Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life,” (John 6:67-68 Holy Bible, New King James).

Many followers of Jesus became discouraged and left. After all, he was a transient leader with no designated meeting place, teaching in the desert, the seashore, the marketplace. Apostle Peter’s question and statement is often referred to as his declaration of faith because of the astounding simplicity. He understood that Jesus had the words of eternal life. There was no better place to go.

Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank You for being all I need. Amen.
