DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Believing in Jesus: In today’s Gospel, Jesus says to the crowd, “You can see me and still do not believe.”  Ponder on, “When I face challenges in my life, how do I usually respond?”  “Do I build my securities in life on material wealth?”  “Are there many fears in my life?”  “How can I deepen my trust in Jesus?”

 Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 6:35-40

Jesus said to the crowd, ‘I am the bread of life. No one who comes to me will ever hunger; no one who believes in me will ever thirst. But, as I have told you, you can see me and still you do not believe. Everyone whom the Father gives me will come to me; I will certainly not reject anyone who comes to me, because I have come from heaven, not to do my own will, but to do the will of him who sent me.

‘Now the will of him who sent me is that I should lose nothing of all that he has given to me, but that I should raise it up on the last day. It is my Father’s will that whoever sees the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and that I should raise that person up on the last day.’
