DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Life – Main Purpose: In today’s Gospel, Jesus reminded the crowds, “Work for food that endures for Eternal Life.”  Ponder on, “Is the main purpose in our lives to seek and live God the Father’s Will, so that we can gain Eternal Life?  How important is God and your faith in Jesus as Saviour, in your daily living?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 6:24-29

When the people saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they got into 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: ‘I tell you solemnly, you are not looking for me because you have seen the signs but because you had all the bread you wanted to eat. Do not work for food that cannot last, but work for food that endures for eternal life, the kind of food the Son of Man is offering 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 do the works that God wants?’ Jesus gave them this answer, ‘This is working for God: you must believe in the one he has sent.’
