Saturday September 1st, John 6: 66 From this time many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed him. 67 "You do not want to leave too, do you?" Jesus asked the Twelve. 68 Simon Peter answered him, "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. 69 We believe and know that you are the Holy One of God."  Jesus’ sayings were hard for his followers back then to take, just as it is hard for his followers today to take.  There are people out there who are hard to love.  It would be much easier to only love the loveable and those like us.  It is easier to create in and out groups and “axis’ of evil” than it is to love one another.  That is, until we realize that Jesus has the words of eternal life.  Love the Lord your God with all your heart and soul and mind and your neighbor as yourself.  It’s not easy, it is work.  It is also, life.
