S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him.
Jesus had just finished a very intense teaching on His Flesh and His Blood, telling His disciples they were to partake in that. Many of them didn’t fully understand, and from that time some turned away from Him.
In time, every one of the people who turned away from Jesus in this story lost it all. They didn’t just lose knowing the God who had spoken the universe into existence. They didn’t just lose their families, raised in the fear and the admonition of the Lord. They didn’t just lose hope in the place of despair and a friend who sticks closer than a brother. No! They also lost Eternal Life. What these former “Followers of Jesus” failed to consider was “The High Price Of Leaving.” Just after this happened, Jesus looked to the remaining disciples and asked “Will you also go away?” Peter responded, “Who else shall we turn to, You alone have the words of eternal life.” Peter and the other disciples stayed, and they “CHANGED THE WORLD.” When the enemy of our soul tempts us to turn away from our blessed Savior, may we remember this story and recall “The High Price Of Leaving.”
I’ll never forget what You’ve done for me. How could I turn back? No, Never! Amen
