Today we read in the Gospel that after many heard the Lord Jesus speak about His body and blood, they left Him, saying: "This is an hard saying; who can hear it?" Believing, following and ordering our life by the "hard sayings" of the Scripture is part of that answer to the question we often hear: "How is Orthodoxy different than (fill in the blank?)." We talk about this hard saying and how a person must live in order to follow hard sayings. Simon Peter gives us one of the necessary things we must do: we must order our life to show we really believe what he told the Lord: "Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life."
