A Part of Everything

At this point many of his disciples turned away and deserted him. - (John 6:66)

When Jesus laid out for His disciples what it really meant to follow Him, many of His so-called disciples left. Then Jesus turned to Peter and the others and said, “Are you also going to leave?” (John 6:67).

Peter said, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words that give eternal life” (verse 68). I love that. Peter was saying, “Lord, we don’t know everything about You. We don’t get You at times. But this much we know: We are sticking with You. We have made a commitment to You, and we want to be close to You.

Are you willing to say that to Jesus? Are you ready to say, “Lord, I want You to go with me wherever I go”? Sure, we will say it to Him when we get on a plane. Lord, bless the pilots. Help the plane operate properly. Lord, get me to my destination safely. There is nothing wrong with praying a prayer like that. Nor is there anything wrong with praying as you are going into the operating room, Lord, be with me now. Guide the hands of the surgeons. Let the operation be successful.

We are enthusiastic about praying when we are headed into an uncertain situation or into rough waters. But are we also ready to say, “Lord, go with us on our vacation,” “Lord, go with us as we go out tonight,” “Lord, go with us as we go to that party,” or “Lord, be with us as we go to this movie”?

Remember, Jesus has His eyes on you. He is looking at you. And we should be able to invite Jesus everywhere—into rough waters and times of crisis as well as into leisure time. We should invite Jesus to be a part of everything we do.

Heaven is a real place. And for that matter, so is Hell. Don’t you think it makes sense to learn everything we can about the afterlife before we find ourselves there?
