Dear Friend in the Lord,

Eternal Life” – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus reminded the great crowds who were clamouring for Him; not to look for “earthly bread” and gains, but to believe in Him as the Messiah; so as to receive the gift of Eternal Life.  Ponder on, “Do we seek God out of our love for Him, or do we seek His gifts more than our love for Him?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 6:23-29

Other boats had put in from Tiberias, near the place where the bread had been eaten. When the people saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they got into those boats and crossed to Capernaum to look for Jesus. When they found him on the other side, they said to him, ‘Rabbi, when did you come here?’

Jesus answered: ‘In all truth I tell you, you are looking for me not because you have seen the signs but because you had all the bread you wanted to eat. Do not work for food that goes bad, but work for food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of man will give you, for on him the Father, God himself, has set his seal.

Then they said to him, ‘What must we do if we are to carry out God’s work?’ Jesus gave them this answer, ‘This is carrying out God’s work: you must believe in the one he has sent.’
