Free To Decide

So Jesus said to the twelve, “You do not want to go away also, do you?” John 6:67

After Jesus gave the crowds difficult teachings , many left Christ because they couldn’t handle either the truth or the obedience of truly being a Christian. So Jesus gave his hand picked disciples an opportunity also to leave or discuss their thoughts.

Jesus is expressing the Free Will God has given all of us. Many atheists or skeptics will argue that God doesn’t grant Free Will , however Jesus is clearly offering this , not only to his disciples but everyone. We have a choice whether we want to be in Gods presence or not. God doesn’t force us to do anything!

Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life. “We have believed and have come to know that You are the Holy One of God.” John 6:68-69

Despite all the people falling away from their faith and despite the difficult teachings  from Jesus, Peter (who’s name means Rock) would not waver in his faith. He knew that Jesus was the Truth, Life, and Way and the only salvation

You have a choice also! Which will you choose, eternal life with God or total separation from God? You cant have both! Choose wisely because eternity is a long time to be wrong!

    Its vey sad that there is always just a remnant that truly follow and even within that remnant we all struggle in following. May we always remember His truth, love, peace and ever guiding hand to lead us onward.

    I hear some people say,well I’ll take my chances,because I don’t believe God would send anyone to hell. What boggles my mind is unsaved people believe they are going to heaven! I ask them why they believe this…answer Because God is Love! He loves me and made me the way I am. LIES FROM THE PIT OF HELL!!!!! If you can’t give Jesus 5 minutes of your time here on earth why would you want to spend eternity with Him?????

    Left to my own devises I was on my way to hell for all eternity! I was my own god and I knew better than anyone what was good for me…Oh how one can deceive themselves when they are wallowing in “sin”! Today, for me,I have no place else to go,no person to turn to, to help me. JESUS IS IT!!! He’s the Only One who has always been there for me even when I didn’t know or follow Him! Today I exercise my “free will” to following Jesus and prayerfully He will find me without spot or blemish when He calls His “bride” home.

    Sweet Shalom brother!

      Amen sister! People love their sin more than they love God…The question is if you don’t want to be with Jesus now why would they want to be with him in Eternity

      Which is why they are going to Hell because they love their Sin more than Jesus

      Shalom sister!
