Words of Eternal Life
Lord, you have the words of eternal life.
‘Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life, ‘
All the glory, praises and honor be to the Heavenly Father in Jesus’ precious name!
The subject verse comes after many of Jesus’ disciples turned back and no longer walked with him. This happened after Jesus declared that he is the bread of life (verse 48). Even more, He emphasized that the words that He spoke are spirit and life.
‘It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh is no help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life. ‘John 6:63 ESV
Still, there are some who would not believe what He said. For they are nominal in their belief. They seemed to follow Jesus, looking at others who really believed in Him. And they neither know the Holy Father nor Jesus. As the scriptures say, these were those people who were not given to Jesus by the Holy Father. Yes, no one comes to Jesus unless it is granted to them by the Holy Father (verse 65). But those whom the Holy Father gave to the Lord, shall always believe and follow Him.
As Peter speaking for all the disciples says, Jesus has the words of eternal life. And nobody, either the gods or the men of the world could give the eternal life. And, those people for whom it is revealed by the Holy Father shall know the truth. The truth, Jesus is the Holy One of the Almighty God. And that, Jesus alone is the way, the truth and the life.
