“You do not want to leave too, do you?” Jesus asked the Twelve. Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and to know that you are the Holy One of God. ” [John 6:67-69]
“You are the Holy One of God”
Many people began following Him, not because they thought He was the Son of God. They followed simply because they wanted to have their stomachs filled. Jesus wanted them to know that in order to follow Him it would require they give themselves completely to Him as the Son of God, not just someone who could give them food to eat.
These sayings of the Lord Jesus proved so distasteful to many who had followed Him that they now left Him and were no longer willing to associate with Him. These disciples were never true believers. They followed the Lord for various reasons, but not out of genuine love for Him or appreciation of who He was.
At this point Jesus turned to the twelve disciples and challenged them with the question as to whether they too, would leave Him. Peter’s said in effect, “Lord, how could we leave you? Where else can we go? You teach the doctrines which lead to eternal life. If we leave You, there is no one else to whom we could go. To leave You would be to seal our doom.”
Speaking for the twelve, Peter further said that they had come to believe and know that the Lord Jesus was the Messiah, the Son of the living God. Notice again the order of the words “believe and know.” First of all, they had put their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and then they came to know that He was indeed all that He professed to be, the Son of the Living God.
Dear reader, I don't know all there is to know, but I do know one thing: that Jesus is indeed the Holy One from God and He is the one I can trust with all of my life even when I can't get it all to make sense. I give myself completely again today. Where else would I go?
What about you….?

“...we will serve the Lord...”
“But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD." [Joshua 24:15]
" I will tell the world that You are the Holy one
You are the Holy one and I worship Your name
You are the Holy one and I stand amazed
You are the Holy one "
