Will ye also go away?

Jesus was speaking about Himself and when He finished speaking, the Bible says, “From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.” John 6:66. I don’t believe they had their hearts in the right spot, because then Jesus asked the remaining twelve, “Will ye also go away?” in verse 67. And Peter answered in the greatest way I think possible, “…to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life.” in verse 68.

We as Christians may not walk away quite like those back with Jesus, but we do in a way stop walking with our Lord. I use the term “gods” as the Ten Commandments when God says have no other gods before Him. Now, we say, “ I don’t serve any graven image”, but there is more to that. The word “god” in the American Heritage Dictionary, it states, “the principal object of faith and worship, something that is worshipped or idolized.”

I put forth the question, why is it that we don’t read our Bible, pray, and worship God, go to church, witness, and do those things we know to be right?

I have heard because we are tired, no time, spending time with family, etc… Yet, we can sit at a ball game for three and four hours in the pouring rain and cold and knowingly face several hours in traffic. Still having to go to work the next day, get up and think we have accomplished something great in our lives, and yet we are too tired to go to church the next day if the game was on a Saturday. We think we need that bigger boat, fancier car, entertainment center, vacation spot, etc. I am not saying these things are bad or ungodly, what I am saying is we so focus on “gods” being something other than what we are doing or have. If it does take the place of spending time with our Lord, then we try to justify it.

I encourage you, as you walk with God, be sure you are truly walking with God. Jesus says, “For where you treasure is, there will your heart be also.” Matt. 6:21. If you find yourself thinking you’d rather be on the lake then in church or reading your Bible and praying, check to see where your treasure is. And if you stop and listen to your heart you may hear Jesus asking you, “Will ye also go away?”


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
