Where Could I Go?

By Ron Thomas

The sentiment of “where can I go?” is an important question that each of us must ask and answer. Peter asked and answered it (John 6:68-69*). It is important that we do the same. Contrast this song** of praise to the Lord with those who live and die in this world.following that which cannot save. On “Huckabee” one evening (Fox News, 11-28-09) there was a segment on the role music plays in the lives of our military personnel as they are in high stress situations. We all can appreciate that. We know the role it plays in our lives without the high-stress situations they face. The kind of music listened to does not compare, however, with the joy of the heart toward God when salvation resides deep within. Because of His salvation, what is it that we give to the Lord? That which we offer to the Lord is to be our very best—and our best is to be the totality of our persons (Romans 12:1-2).

*John 6:68-69—“Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of life. And we believe and are sure that thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.”

**Chorus to the song, “Where Could I Go?”:

“Where could I go,
O where could I go,
Seeking a refuge for my soul?
Needing a friend to save me in the end,
Where could I go but to the Lord?”
