“Jesus never let go my hands,
He will never let go my hands,
Though the storms may come,
And the winds may blow,
He will never let go my hands”
Will you leave me too? Jesus asked His 12 disciples, after many other disciples left following Jesus.
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him. And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. (John 6:63-66)
Peters answer is heart-breaking as much as the question from Jesus. “To whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life.” (John 6:68)
Peter the unlearned and ignorant fisherman knew who Jesus was, and what Jesus had. What about you dear believer?
Peter denied Jesus, messed up multiple times, but after the baptism of the Holy Spirit, he lived believing, everyday. God did wonders and miracles in and through him. He believed and saw the glory of God, and he made sure, never to let go.
Never let go of Jesus
Dear believer, you are no different from Peter. The Holy Spirit that he was baptised with is the same working in all Spirit baptised children of God. What’s stopping you to live in power, love and a sound mind? (2 Timothy 1:7).
Soon and very soon, we are going to meet the King. Jesus is our all in all. If you are reading this, wake up from your settled state in life. Rise up in prayer and an intentional personal study of God’s word.
Let God glorify Jesus in and through you. Maranatha, praise God and amen!
