Jesus was speaking to a multitude of people, saying things that didn’t make sense to their natural mind. Much of it seemed quite bizarre, leading some to think that He was a crazy man. At the conclusion of His talk, the Bible says:
“From this time many of His disciples turned back and no longer followed Him. "Do you also want to go away?" Jesus asked the Twelve. Simon Peter answered Him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.”
Notice that Peter doesn’t stop there, but goes on to say, “Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” (John 6:66-69)
When we come to the realization that Jesus is who He says He is, we can fully trust Him when He tells us something or directs us in a way that doesn’t make sense to us. We can trust Him even when the multitude mocks and when those who once followed Him walk away.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:9)
TRUST HIM! And trust that His plans for you ARE good! (Jeremiah 29:11)
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
