Jeremy Camp‘s song, “Word of Life,” is based off of an exchange with Jesus and His disciples in John 6. His new album, “The Answer,” is a reminder that no matter what life brings, JESUS is the answer!
At this point many of his disciples turned away and deserted him. Then Jesus turned to the Twelve and asked, “Are you also going to leave?”
Simon Peter replied, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words that give eternal life. We believe, and we know you are the Holy One of God.”
– John 6:66-69 (NLT, emphasis added)
Jeremy says, “Many times when things get tough, when things get hard, our first initial reaction is to say, I don’t know if I can handle this. And I can just tell you, there’s nowhere else to run.
I mean, you can run to the world and turn your back on the Lord, but that’s where all the problems are. And there’s pain and there’s hurt right there. But Jesus literally offers peace, He offers hope, He offers joy, He offers the words of eternal life. And I wanna encourage you guys… man, stick to the only true source of life, and that’s Jesus Christ because He gives us all that we need.”
