"To whom shall we go?"

"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 believe and know that you are the Holy One of God."John 6:67-69

"To whom shall we go?" When you think about it, Peter's question here is more of a declaration. Peter knew Jesus was the only one who was able to give meaning to life. And he knew there was no better place for him to be.

Peter wasn't perfect. He had his shortcomings. But when it came down to it, Peter recognized that Jesus was greater than anything or anyone else. And he was willing to put aside all his doubts and continue following the one he had seen work miracles and change lives.

When you are faced with doubts in your life and think you may want to bail on Jesus, take a moment to ask yourself what Peter asked. "To whom shall I go?" Take inventory of what God has done in your life. And realize that no matter what circumstances or problems you may be facing, that Jesus is the only one who can help you overcome them.
