Bible Reading: John 6:1-7
From that time, many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. John 6:66
Many of the disciples of Jesus were visibly offended when Jesus said, “Verily, verily I say unto you, except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, ye shall have no life in you” Many of the disciples left Him. Only those with spiritual eyes can appreciate spiritual things. When Jesus talked about his flesh and blood being bread and drink, he was speaking symbolically. Those that were in flesh saw it with the eyes of the flesh, picked offence and left. They made up their minds not to follow him anymore. Jesus turned to the twelve and said, “Will ye also go away? These things are happening in the church today. Some of you reading this message this morning are victims. Many people have changed churches over and over again because the pastor dared to speak or acted in a way unacceptable to them. The pastor is a representative of God upon the earth, he is God’s oracle, he is answerable to God only and not to man.
