Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 100

100. The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing (John 6:63).

Jesus’ answer to their confusion over his eat-my-body teaching isn’t really an answer at all. Why doesn’t Jesus clarify more clearly for his little band of insiders? Perhaps it’s because their relationship with Him and with the Father can’t be dependent on always understanding. Instead it is to be built on faith. The whole idea of following another is to let them lead, even when you are unsure of the way. If we must understand or be able to connect all the dots, there is no room for faith and we end up becoming our own god. Faith only works in the dark.
