“He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.” (John 6:56, NKJV)
In today’s meditative practice, we read the disciples response to Jesus’ words: “This is a difficult saying!” (6:60, NET).
We can relate to the disciples’ honesty. The commands of Christ are not easy – loving our enemies, self-denial, sacrifice. Yet, as Peter says, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words of eternal life” (v. 68, NET).
Have you ever found yourself in a similar situation as the disciples, wrestling with Jesus’ claims and commands?
Today’s video guides you through this passage as you contemplate on Peter’s confession as well as your own.

Enjoying this daily lesson of the Bible. Has made me stop and look deeper into the words and what they mean to and for me. Things are becoming clearer to me as I read and study. Love the commentary of answers to the questions.
My first time in the session. It was purposeful and meditative in the sense that the teacher carefully brought me to think of the words of Christ in the Book of John. I needed this to refresh me and renew my walk with the Lord. Thank you for the quality time here.
Thank you, GOD, for bringing this study into My life. The renewal and refreshing that YOU have brought through this study is so awesome. Thank you for this teacher and his wisdom.
For years I have had the desire to know God more intimately. Upon my return from Afghanistan in 2008, I asked God to reveal Himself to me. He did just that. He opened up His Word to me. From early in the morning until late at night, I searched the Scriptures and the Holy Spirit opened the Bible to me. I want to thank you for providing this study for me, because it enhances what God is doing in my life. The study has shown me that the Bible passages are prayers to the Father. The meditation comes from being in the presence. As I get closer to His presence, I experience more of an intimate relationship with Him. Again I thank you for the Abide Bible and I thank you for this study.
