An Evangelism Thought...
“’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.’” John 6:67-68 
Although the Twelve didn’t yet understand what Jesus was teaching them, they knew that apart from Jesus, they would never know truth. Like the Twelve, if we don’t understand a teaching from God’s Word, Jesus is the place to go for understanding.
