Reflection on John 6:30-35 ~
How close we become to Jesus, ties directly to the essence of spiritual hunger and thirst. The more we live the Cross, the more we can comprehend and accept that this hunger and thirst motivates us to serve others. Jesus desires that we participate in letting others know that there is wonderous dormant love within, ready to spark into flame for each other. He is the bread of life that our society so desperately needs. If in our own unique ways, we can show evidence of His glorious and heavenly beautification through us and trust His guiding spirit we can participate in transforming our world.
30 So they said to him, “What sign are you going to give us then, so that we may see it and believe you? What work are you performing? 31 Our ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’” 32 Then Jesus said to them, “Very truly, I tell you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” 34 They said to him, “Sir, give us this bread always.”
35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.
