THE TIME OF RELAPSE

Will ye also go away?

John 6:67
http://www.BibleStudyTools.com/search/?query=joh+6:67&sr=1

A penetrating question. Our Lord's words come home most when He talks
in the most simple way. We know Who Jesus is, but in spite of that He
says - "Will ye also go away?" We have to maintain a venturing
attitude toward Him all the time.

"From that time many of His disciples went back, and walked no more
with Him." They went back from walking with Jesus, not into sin, but
they relapsed. Many to-day are spending and being spent in work for
Jesus Christ, but they do not walk with Him. The one thing God keeps
us to steadily is that we may be one with Jesus Christ. After
sanctification the discipline of our spiritual life is along this
line. If God gives a clear and emphatic realization to your soul of
what He wants, do not try to keep yourself in that relationship by
any particular method, but live a natural life of absolute dependence
on Jesus Christ. Never try to live the life with God on any other
line than God's line, and that line is absolute devotion to Him. The
certainty that I do not know - that is the secret of going with
Jesus.

Peter only saw in Jesus Someone to minister salvation to him and to
the world. Our Lord wants us to be yoke-fellows with Him.

v. 70. Jesus answers the great lack in Peter. We cannot answer for
others.
