JOHN 6:22-34 JESUS SAID TO THEM, THIS IS THE WORK OF GOD, THAT YOU BELIEVE IN HIM WHOM HE SENT

00:0000:00

       John 6:22 The next day the crowd that stood on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other small boat there, except one, and that Jesus had not entered with His disciples into the boat, but that His disciples had gone away alone. 23 There came other small boats from Tiberias near to the place where they ate the bread after the Lord had given thanks. 24 So when the crowd saw that Jesus was not there, nor His disciples, they themselves got into the small boats, and came to Capernaum seeking Jesus. 25 When they found Him on the other side of the sea, they said to Him, “Rabbi, when did You get here?” 26 Jesus answered them and said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you seek Me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled. 27 Do not work for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you, for on Him the Father, God, has set His seal.” 28 Therefore they said to Him, “What shall we do, so that we may work the works of God?” 29 Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.” 30 So they said to Him, “What then do You do for a sign, so that we may see, and believe You? What work do You perform? 31“Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, ‘HE GAVE THEM BREAD OUT OF HEAVEN TO EAT.’ ” 32 Jesus then said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread out of heaven, but it is My Father who gives you the true bread out of heaven. 33 “For the bread of God is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world.”  34      Then they said to Him, “Lord, always give us this bread.”

 In this section of Scripture we will see Jesus really come to the heart of the matter.  They want signs, He wants their salvation.  The want food, He wants faith. They want to work to please God. He wants them to come freely.  Jesus wants us to understand that He is the only way to heaven, that the signs written about in the Old Testament pointed to Him being the reality.  Jesus is the Living Water, He is the Bread from heaven.  Are you hungry, are you thirsty? Come to Jesus and He will satisfy your deepest longings and give you eternal life.
