Don't Walk Away

Topic: Don't Walk Away

Scripture Reading: John 6, 2 Thessalonians 2:3

Main Text
John 6:65-69

'And He said, “Therefore I have said to you that no one can come to Me unless it has been granted to him by My Father.”
From that time many of His disciples went back and walked with Him no more. 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. Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

In John chapter 6, Jesus seems to be doing all He can to drive away as many people as He can from His ministry. Evidently, He didn't read some of the books we have read on the subject of leadership and success in ministry. I mean, we are always trying to find a successful "enlargement" campaign, here, Jesus ran a successful "ensmallment" campaign! When John chapter 6 opens, Jesus has over 5,000 people following Him and listening to Him speak. When this chapter closes, He only has 12 men with Him and one of them is not even saved.

Jesus revealed on earth that numbers don't count in His Kingdom but salvation; a changed life matters.

Peter knew how his life had been changed and this was enough to make his state with confidence that he would not walk away! Yes, there came a time of weakness in Peter's life when he failed the Lord. He did turn his back on Jesus for a time, but he did not walk away forever! One of the best definitions I have ever heard of what a Christian really is was this: "One who cannot walk away!"

Once you have felt the powerful touch of Almighty God, once you have walked in the light of His glory, once you have tasted of His goodness and experienced His best, you will never be satisfied with substitutes and imitations! You may wander for a time, but you, like the Prodigal son will "come to yourself". You will remember what it was like in the Father's house and you will come home! When you do, He will receive you with open arms and perfect restoration.

"Will you also go away?" Not everyone walks away from Him! In fact, some people make a total commitment to the Lord and to His will for their lives. I pray that is you. On the other hand, some people hear the claims of Christ and the demands of the Gospel and just walk away which is also a sign of the end time. They go off in search of a better deal, of something more agreeable to their flesh. Not everyone walks away, what will you do?
Selah

Prayer:
Eternal Father, thank You for the gift of Salvation. I receive grace to remain in Christ Jesus forever in Jesus' mighty name. Amen

Tell a neighbour about Jesus Christ today. Blessed weekend!
