Daily Word Of God
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.’
