Message of the Day: He came to Save Us! Believing Is The Key!
Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.” (John 6:29, NASB)
After the feeding of the multitude, people were out the next day looking for Jesus. They wanted him to be their king. But Jesus knew their motive: it was not about spiritual matters but because they thought he possessed magical powers that could provide their basic needs.
He told them not to fix their desire on physical and temporal things but rather to seek the things that are eternal. That is, the eternal blessing of salvation or eternal life (John 6:22-27).
Jesus was sent not just to meet our physical needs! He came to save us and give us eternal life! We should not think though, that we have nothing to do, or that we should sit down and wait. There is work to do, that is, to BELIEVE in HIM.
