Jesus had just started gaining followers when He dropped the bomb: He was sent by His Father and His Father was God.
Many “withdrew.” Jesus turns to His 12 and asks if they would also leave. Peter replies, “To whom shall we go?”
I’ve been thinking about that answer. Where else would I go?
I choose where I go. You choose where you go. The people who left Jesus, decided on their own. Jesus did not kick them out.
You are either walking with Jesus or you are not. There is no third path. If you are not walking with Jesus, where are you going?
