It's Day 6 and we're in John 6.
Where God Spoke To Me:
- Verse 15 - Jesus didn't trust people's instincts to lead to the right thing. Why do I sometimes?
- Verse 29 - This isn't saying that we just have to say we "believe" in Jesus and then we can go live our lives any way we want. To truly believe in Jesus, I must then act on what He said to do (i.e. follow His teachings) because I believe that what He said is true is really true. That's required to actually believe in Jesus.
- Verses 51-56, 60, 63 - This is the original "hard saying" from Jesus. These are tough words. The best way I think to understand it is that Jesus sacrificed His body and blood in my place, so therefore I have to receive that into my life in order to experience new spiritual life. Obviously, we tie these words into what we celebrate at communion.

- "I never thought about Jesus' disciples doing the baptizing versus Jesus doing it. I guess I just always pictured Jesus doing it. Did he baptize at all?" - There is no indication that Jesus ever baptized anyone. It appears He had His disciples do that.
