Text: John 6: 67. Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?
We are in a generation where the truth is being managed, to keep people to yourself.
In a generation where the truth is hidden to maintain a deceptive and non-profiting relationship.
We must know that 99% of the truth equals a 100% lie.
The truth that sets free is not the one that we have failed to expose.
The truth that sets free is the truth we share with others.
From our Bible Text, we can clearly see as Jesus taught, many of His disciples walked with Him no more.
Jesus speaking the truth made it known unto the people that He is the bread of life, it was too heavy for them to comprehend and they walked with the Lord no more. John 6:48-66.
We want to make heaven, but not ready to accept and pay the price tag attached to it.
We get so excited when the preacher manages the words and tell us what our itching ear had desired.
It keeps the congregation coming, it keeps the service filled but when the truth is revealed and preached accordingly, we back out and talk evil against the preacher.
Some time ago as I ministered to someone, I told him that he must honor God with his body, stop the intake of dangerous and ungodly substances like smoking and alcohol.
He was angry but that was actually the word of God for him at that moment. He told me,
“Sir, when you smoke, you die and when you don’t smoke, you still die, so something must kill a man”.
In case you have the same philosophy to such a lifestyle, now hear the word of the Lord.
There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, who walk after the Spirit and not the flesh. Romans 8:1.
You cannot be redeemed by God and still walk in the flesh.
No condemnation, no judgment, no death to those who are in Christ Jesus, and walk in the Spirit and not the flesh.
It’s only a walk in the flesh would push a man to an immoral, alcoholic, smoking and evil lifestyle.
And the flesh profits nothing. John 6:63.
A walk in the flesh ends in death and eternal separation from God. Galatians 5:19-21, Revelation 21:8.
But God who knows the end from the beginning sent His only son because of His love for me and you, that as many that would believe in His son, would not die but live eternally in His kingdom. John 3:16.
We must abide by God’s word and live by His spirit.
Honor God with your body for it is the dwelling place of His Spirit as a believer. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20.
Will you also go away because of the truth says the Lord?
Will you also go away like many others because things are tough with you?
Will you also go away because of that sickness that has tarried for long?
Jesus Christ is the answer and solution to every question of life.
Just like Simon responded, in the same manner, we must respond to the Lord’s question.
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 6:68-69.
May God help us to live uprightly and remain faithful in our service unto Him, in Jesus’ name.
