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: ‘I tell you most 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.’

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.
