DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Do I love Jesus?”: In today’s Gospel, Jesus challenged the crowd to reflect on whether their love for Him is sincere and deep.  Reflect on, “Do I love Jesus?”  “How is this shown?”  “Is my love for Jesus more focused on what I need from Him?”  A self-focused love is not deep and sincere.

 Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

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.’
