why do you look for Jesus christ ??
in today's text, we found many people around Jesus.
why did they get together ??
They have something bad in their mind.
That is the physical desire !!
They seek and follow Jesus only to solve their economical and political problem.
Can you imagine how delighted they are when the crowds find the very man who can solve their problem.
Maybe they must be very happy.
but. Jesus response ??? not same thing with theirs !!!!!
Jesus clearly point what they have in their mind. and says "verse 26"
Do you know why Jesus came ???
The purpose of Jesus coming is even greater than solving the physical and political problem.
That is saving your everlasting soul from your sin, your curse from the sin.
He is Messiah to save your soul and to build the broken peace between you and your loving God.
The miracle of five bread and two fish is to prove that he is the very Messiah.
Jesus surely know the importance of physical problem
so, he made miracle to solve their hunger.
But as the 27 verse says,
although people enjoy their political and economical freedom fully,
they will face the door of death to meet their savior.
Waiting for that moment, what do you have to ask Jesus ,
what do you want your savior Jesus ????
only for your money ,only for your job, only for your health.
not enough !!! I have the answer !!!
What you ask Jesus when you come to church is everlasting food for your soul, and glory of God, benefit for other church member.
one more thing , I want to you see 1 John verse 17 .
if you work hard for everlasting food , that work is surely paid back.
