And then there are those to whom Jesus means something. There are many who followed Jesus, but not necessarily for the right reasons. John told about people who followed Jesus because they saw His miracles (John 6:2). This was exciting stuff! Plus, you never knew when Jesus might multiply loaves and fish and provide a free lunch. But when pressed for a personal commitment to the person of Christ, these fickle followers quickly backed off (see John 6:66).
And then there are those to whom Jesus means everything. After the fair-weather followers had turned back, Jesus looked at His remaining disciples and asked, “Do you also want to go away?” Simon Peter answered for all believers to whom Jesus means everything. He said, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God” (John 6:68-69).
So, what does Jesus mean to you? To some Jesus means nothing. To others He means something. May be we numbered with those to whom Jesus means everything!
