LORD, INCREASE OUR FAITH

UNDAILY Episode 113


For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. On hearing it, many of his disciples said, “This is a hard teaching. Who can accept it?” Aware that his disciples were grumbling about this, Jesus said to them, “Does this offend you? Then what if you see the Son of Man ascend to where he was before! The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing. The words I have spoken to you—they are full of the Spirit and life. Yet there are some of you who do not believe.” For Jesus had known from the beginning which of them did not believe and who would betray him. He went on to say, “This is why I told you that no one can come to me unless the Father has enabled them.” From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him. “You do not want to leave too, do you?” Jesus asked the Twelve. Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.  We have come to believe and to know that you are the Holy One of God.” 

JOHN 6, 55. 60-69 (NIV)


"I am the Food that truly satisfies, and my blood is the only drink that truly quenches spiritual thirst." These words were met with misunderstanding and even rejection. For many, this message was difficult, elusive, too... revolutionary. Who can listen to this? — they asked in disappointment. These same words still resonate today with equally impressive force. Not because they are incomprehensible intellectually, but because they demand more from us than just flipping through the pages of the Bible. How often do we ourselves, faced with a difficult truth of faith, are tempted to deem it "too radical" or "impractical"?
