Hard sayings

This “Nudge” has been the subject of several books. There are at least seven books available from an Internet bookseller that covers this topic. So, this is a good “Nudge,” and will produce a number of responses. (This was probably premeditated by the “Nudger.” However, we the “Nudged” will attempt to be moved.)

“I am the bread of life,” Jesus said three times in John 6:35, 48 and 51. That this was a hard saying is documented by the Master’s own disciples in John 6:60 and is one of the reasons why the Jews wanted to kill him.

Just behold the numbers who do not believe the saying this very day. The Muslims do not. Those who call themselves Jews do not. Atheists do not.

And when we talk about obeying Jesus’ commands, there are legions who think they are religious, but do not believe and obey. Jesus said, “He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved,” (Mark 16:16). If one does not obey Jesus’ commands, then one does not love Jesus, neither does one understand that he is the bread that came down from heaven (John 14:15; John 15:14).

If a person does not obey Christ, then they are members of the same crowd that walked away from Jesus on that day in John 6. They are not members of Christ.
