In the series, "I Am", Pastor Nathan Gagne examines the 'I Am' statements of Jesus. First, he examines the miracle of feeding the 5,000 and how they subsequently left following the miracle. Following God only for the benefits He gives shows not only a lack of faith, but makes one susceptible to walking away when they don't receive what they pray for. Following God will not always be easy, however, He will always love and never forsake any who seek to follow. As Simon Peter says in John 6 when asked by Jesus if the 12 would leave along with the 5,000; "To whom would we go? You have the words that give eternal life."
