"To Whom Shall We Go?"
April 29, 2006Email to a FriendPrint
Simon Peter answered Him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life." John 6:68
Millions of people are asking the same question -- "To whom shall we go?" What a shame that so many do not know the answer! They are searching, investigating, hoping against hope that something, somebody, anybody will give them the true meaning and purpose of life. By nature we all want to know the answers to the three basic questions of life: Who am I? Why am I here? Where am I going?
Many flock to the New Age movement, to a guru, to astrologers. We are told that Americans spend large sums of money trying to find out the purpose and direction of their lives from fortune-tellers. Many people observe the positions of the stars and planets to help them make decisions.
Peter answered his own question with a beautiful confession of faith: "You have the words of eternal life." Jesus is our life. He who surrendered His life for us gives us new life, a life of forgiveness and eternal life with Him. We need to go to Jesus and His Word alone. He is the only way, the only truth, the only life.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, keep my faith focused on you always, in times of perplexity and of peace. Amen.
