You have the words of eternal life

“Simon Peter answered him, ‘Master, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and are convinced that you are the Holy One of God.’” (JN 6: 68-69)

“You have the words of eternal life.” We should always remember that the Good News is not a book, even an extraordinary book, but a living Person—“and the Word was God.” This is why Our Lord not only IS the word of eternal life but also “HAS the words of eternal life.” When we are confused at a dead end, or not sure what to do, we should go to Him and ask Him first who we are and then what to do. When we open a Bible to pray or to meditate, firstly we are received as a His children, and from this position He can lead us to the right end.

“Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life; you have the words of everlasting life.” (Gospel Acclamation)
