Spirit and Life

What if you were to see the Son of Man ascending to where he was before?
It is the Spirit that gives life, while the flesh is of no avail.
The words I have spoken to you are Spirit and life.
But there are some of you who do not believe.

John 6:62-64

No truer words have ever been spoken than the one's Jesus spoke. Because many do not believe, and many have left Him. Just as those who followed him during the time this was being said, did. Those who believed in him as the Son of God stayed on to bring us what we have today. How sad it is to say we believe but do not. How sad it is to be a disciple and walk away, yet continue as if we believe. It is when we profess love of God and walk with Jesus and do abominable acts that we no longer believe in what we believed. We have no life unless it is lived with the Spirit, the Spirit of Jesus, the Spirit of God. It is with certainty, the belief and faith in the Son of God is where we will have life. Just as God knows what is in each of our hearts. Some accept his call, but then leave. Some follow and leave. Do any truly stay and follow all the way to eternal life?
