Discussion for John 6:68

  • Suzan Maake on John 6:68
    People did not understand Jesus Christ 's teachings when He said eat my flesh and drink my blood. Thanks to Peter by saying to you there's a word. Peter realized that Jesus Christ is the Word according to the book of John. The Word which was there in the beginning.. The word which create everything that was created. You eat His flesh you will have life in abandoned. Prays the Lord lm really touched.
  • Jesus is the Bread of Life - in Reply on John 6:68
    Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat.

    Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you NOT that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you THE TRUE BREAD from heaven.

    For the bread of God is HE which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.

    Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.

    And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.

    For now, this is why we celebrate Communion together, in remembrance of Jesus: at the Lords Supper.

    A lot of people do not think it's proper to observe The Lords Supper at home. Alone or with family and friends. I don't agree.

    The disciples rented the room, for the night of the Lords Supper. It wasn't a church.

    If the Government closes our churches: we can still meet together other ways. If we've been in church all of lives, we know the seriousness of this celebration.

    First we must forgive EVERYONE who has wronged us. If we partake without doing that, we bring condemnation on ourselves.

    If we don't forgive others, that's why it feels like God is not listening to our prayers. It's a serious thing: unforgiveness. It's hard to remember all the faces who angered us.

    You can ask the Holy Spirit to call those faces to your remembrance.

    The act of forgiving those who don't even deserve it... is one of the most freeing spiritual moments a Christian can experience with God, our Father; Jesus our Savior.

    The people we hold captive in our hearts and minds are the door that Satan uses to approach the Throne of God to accuse us.

    Just say " I forgive you" over and over, until it takes root in your heart. God wants us to be free to worship in purity; heart, soul and mind. Pray about this.
  • Maurice Cloete on John 6:68
    It means that Jesus requires us to be faithful, when we truly believe that He is the Messiah, and we 've confessed Him as Lord and Savior, for where or to whom can we turn to but Christ Jesus, and follow Him by the leading of the Blessed Holy Spirit, to attain or have eternal life? No one else but Him, the incarnate Son Of God.
  • Kim Mc Donald on John 6:68
    my God is my strength and that is what i 'm standing on
  • Drew Laudie on John 6:68
    The meaning of Thou hast the words of eternal life is when The Savior appears to you and tells you that you now have eternal life see 2nd Peter 1 10
  • Fortune on John 6:68
    I am realy touched by this chapter. It is regretable that many of Jesus' desciples left him when they failed to understand the eating of flesh and the drinking of Jesus' blood!!
    Nevertheless, I am much encouraged by Simon Peter's answer on 6v68, when he indicated that they were there to stay;why? Because Jesus alone has taught them the words of eternal life and they believed Him.Even me today,I am here to stay,nomatter what mr devil do or say concerning my life!!!!! No, I am here to stay-Amen and Amen!!!!
