MARCH 16 READING…NUMBERS 24 & JOHN 6
God requires that we follow Him, obey Him, and speak the things that come from Him. This is not always easy, and it will cause many to turn away. In Numbers, Balaam was faithful to speak only the words the Lord gave him, this made Balak angry, even though Balaam told him that no matter what he gave him, he would speak only the things of God. This caused one man to go the way of the Lord, while the other went his own way. In John 6, Jesus miraculously feeds thousands with five loaves and two fish…this caused people to proclaim that Jesus was the Prophet who came into the world. Then Jesus began to speak the eternal truth of God, and they could not comprehend it, nor would they receive it. Many ”would be” followers left Jesus, because His teachings were too hard. Jesus asked His disciples if they too would leave. Peter said, “Where else can we go…You have the words of eternal life”. Where are we going to go? Into the world…or are we going to follow Jesus?
Please share your thoughts.
