We Know Where We Will Be Found
John 6: 22-35
Eternal life is real. Life in this world will finally fail us. But not the life God gives. Not the life Jesus gives. (Heed Jesus' words in John 6:27)
Jesus' miraculous feeding of the 5,000 was meant to be a sign pointing beyond itself to something more, to Jesus as the source of eternal life.
1. The work of God, the work God desires of us, the work God works in us, is not work but faith. It is not what we do but what God gives us in Jesus.
Jesus' focus is on the spiritual, what is heavenly and eternal.
Eternal life is God's gift in Jesus. The bread of life is God's gift. Jesus is the true bread from heaven. Jesus is the bread of life.
Jesus says, "I am the Bread of life." (John 6:35) Jesus gave His life on a cross for you, for me, for all, so that we might have eternal life.
We celebrate the spiritual life that we have received from this Jesus, our "bread of life."
This bread is ours to eat by faith. Eternal life is ours in Christ. Nothing can rob us of it.
2. Jesus' discourse on the bread of life is about Jesus and believing in Him. Jesus is the source of eternal life. Believing in Jesus is God's work in us.
As with the crowd Jesus fed, engaged, and taught, we sometimes tend to stay stuck at the sign, at the lowest level of things, on material, physical things. It is for higher things that Jesus came. It is for the purpose of giving and sustaining eternal life that God gave us Jesus.
Our deepest hunger, though we don't always realize it, is for God. Jesus, in His suffering and death on the cross, and in His resurrection from the dead, satisfies this hunger.
What do we seek from Jesus? We often seek what we can get from Jesus rather than seeking Jesus Himself. We seek things on every other level than spiritual.
When we feed on Jesus in faith, we live eternally. We know where we will be found.
