Daily Word Of God

John 6:24-29

After Jesus had fed the five thousand, 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.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • In addressing the crowd, after the multiplication of the loaves, Jesus wanted the people then, and also wants us today to reflect on the different desires of our lives.


  • We are each hungering for physical, emotional and spiritual fulfillment daily. However, only God can satisfy our spiritual hunger – the hunger for the ultimate meaning, value and Truth that leads us to eternal life.


  • Ponder on your deepest longings in life and speak to the Lord about it.
