To Whom Shall We Go
“From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus unto the twelve, will ye also go away? Then Simon Peter answered him, 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” – (Jn.6:66-69).
Would that the whole world would ask themselves this most crucial question – “To whom shall we go?” This question is still pertinent today. There is no other religious teacher to whom we should go to. Who else could we turn to find what Jesus Christ offers? Nothing in this world, or any other religion in the world can offer what Christ offers to all who will come to Christ in true faith believing in Him and being born again.
many turned back form Christ and walked no more with him. We will find many
like these in Christian churches when the Beast comes – Mr. 666 and they make their eternal choice of receiving the mark of
the beast – 666 or not. In these last days of apostasy and falling away, we
need to ask again the most crucial question – “Whom are you following?” Are you
following the president or pope or some other person? Millions in the
Jesus Christ alone has the words of eternal life. His preaching shows us the way to eternal life and he proved it when he rose from the dead.
He proved to be God when His blood He shed
He proved to be God when He rose from the dead.
Jesus Christ is the son of God. He has the power to raise the dead and give eternal life to all that repent of sin and believe on Him and get saved. Several times in (Jn.6) Jesus told them He was the way to eternal life – (See verses 27-40-47-54-58) and when he preached that in Him was eternal life, many people turned away from following Him – O’ the foolish people. To whom did they go?
Peter didn’t know much of what was going to take place in the future, but one thing he knew – that nobody had offered him eternal life and he was going to follow Christ. “Because thou are the Christ, the son of the living God.” Jesus Christ alone has the words of eternal life because He is the only begotten Son of God that was sacrificed on the cross for your sins that cause your death. Yes – to whom shall we go? The wise go to Christ. He has eternal life – all else is secondary. He is the foundation of living water, all others are broken cisterns. “But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life” – (Jn.4:14). O’ the precious flowing well of eternal life from Jesus Christ. Don’t follow the Ponce de Leon’s of the world searching for the fountain of youth. Jesus Christ alone has the water of life. To whom shall we go?
in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only potentate, the King of
Kings, and Lord of Lords; who only hath immortality.” – (I
Tim.6:15,16). Don’t follow the
(Jn.17:2,3) says – “As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent” – (Jn.17:2,3).
There is only one true God – all others are false Gods. The Father and his son Jesus Christ is the true God. Don’t follow after these false Gods, and false religions and false ways. There are absolutes and there is absolutely only one way to eternal life – through the Lord Jesus Christ. To whom shall we go? He is the world’s only Savior.
Both Jews and Gentiles, whosoever will, can have eternal life through Christ. “And when the Gentiles heard this, they were glad, and glorified the word of the Lord; and as many as were ordained to eternal life believed” – (Acts ). Have you gone to Christ and been born again by the Holy Spirit? Seek eternal life. Conquer your death, both the death of your body and the second death in the lake of fire. Don’t reject the amazing grace in God’s beloved Son on the cross. “That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord” – (Rom.5:21). You receive eternal life when your sins are forgiven by the Lord Jesus. “But now being made free from sin and become servants of God, ye have your fruit unto holiness and the end everlasting life. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” – (Rom.6:22,23). Go to Christ for the free gift of eternal life according to the riches of God’s grace. To whom shall we go? – Go to Christ and live forever. Life is in the blood of God’s Passover Lamb on the cross.
the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life” – (I Tim.6:12). Many are
turning away from Christ today. Be like Peter – follow the only true God – the
Lord Jesus Christ. He only has immortality. We’re in a battle today. The devil
is saying ‘all religions are the same – we all worship the same god.’ It’s
politically correct and religiously correct today to have a generic God. The
saints of God will soon suffer persecution here in the
Faith is the substance of things hoped for, and we hope for eternal life – “In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began” – (Titus 1:2). A precious promise of God – eternal life – “And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life” – (I Jn.2:25). Again in (Titus 3:7) – “That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” The most important part of our inheritance through being saved by Christ is eternal life and then we shall inherit ‘all things’– (Rev.21:7). What an inheritance! What a Savior! “And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him” – (Heb.5:9). We can live forever if we’re saved by Christ – to whom shall we go? Do you want a new immortal body? Go to Christ. This is what Easter is all about.
“For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bare witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us” – (I Jn.1:2) “And this is the record, that God, hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. “He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life” – (I Jn.5:11,12). By repenting of your sins and believing on Christ in your heart by faith you can eat of that tree of life that Adam and Eve were barred from eating after they sinned – “To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God’ – (Rev.2:7).
Don’t choose the way of eternal death in the lake of fire – choose the way of life. Don’t reject eternal life in God’s beloved Son. Jesus Christ is the true God and eternal life. Go to the only one that can allow you to live forever. You can depend on the promise of God- amen and amen. To whom shall we go? – Only Jesus Christ has the words of eternal life. Believe in Him.
Go to Christ – don’t go to hell.
