The Challenge of Jesus: This is a hard saying.": (John 6:48-69)
All teachers challenge us to imitate them, but only Jesus challenges us to ingest him. Travis used John 6 to show us that the challenge to "feed on Jesus" was a hard saying that pushed many disciples to turn away from Jesus. So, what does it mean to ingest Jesus? It is the daily pursuit of Jesus that never ends and allows Jesus to be the sustaining force for life irregardless of your circumstances. Are you continuing to receive Jesus regardless of what you receive from Him? Are you still chewing on Jesus, or did you give that up after it got too hard? Wherever you may be on your spiritual journey our prayer is that you would find the transforming life that Jesus offers.
