John 6:66-69

John 6:66-69
English Standard Version (ESV) 

  Jesus' words aren't always easy, but as Peter says, he alone has the words of eternal life.  The benefits of following Christ are eternal, and because God is love, we can trust the words of Christ, even when they're challenging.
  So don't be afraid to read the words of Christ, and pause at the challenges.  Think about the ways your faith is calling you to grow, to be transformed by the renewing of your minds.  God is at work in you, and the goal is not to leave you where you are, but to grow you up in faith.  
  Think of a place for you to grow in faith.  Lean into that.  Focus on it for the next week or two -- give God space to work in your life.  Where do you need to grow?  It's not easy, but it's important, vital work.
