 So they asked him, “What can we do in order to do what God wants us to do?” Jesus answered, “What God wants you to do is to believe in the one he sent.” They replied, “What miracle will you perform so that we may see it and believe you? What will you do?  Our ancestors ate manna in the desert, just as the scripture says, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’”  [John 6 : 28 31]

What sign will You give us, they said, what are You going to show us that You are Messiah? Excuse me, but two miracles had already been performed, the feeding of the five thousand and he had walked on water.

The feeding of the five thousand from two fish and five loaves, should have given them a hint about the Manna from heaven, to understand that a new Exodus, a new beginning has arrived in the shape of Jesus. He is to lead all people from the desert of their minds and their hearts to a new way of worship, a new relationship with God.

The feeding was a “sign” to lead people to the Bread of Life, the Messiah. The people though had different “signs” in their head about who the Messiah should have been. They had Kingship, Glory, Power and an immediate Victory in mindand nothing could have been further from the truth.

What matters is, not what Jesus can do for you, but, who He is. The Divine, the Son of God, the one on whom God set His Seal. Just as a seal is set on Gold to show its purity, or on a document where the signatory seals it to show its worth and importance.

What Jesus does is His Fathers’ work, He did then and He does now. We may seek “signs” even today and the greatest “sign” is His Love for us, and His care for us. All those who seek the Lord often call it a “Hunger”, a hunger within when we need to get close to Him. Jesus satisfies that hunger when He feeds us with spiritual things.

Jesus said “Come to Me”, “have faith in Me”. In the Gospel, the people asked, “what shall we do”? It is simple, believe in Him, start with Faith, then be filled with His Love. 

LET US PRAY

JESUS THE BREAD OF LIFE, CALLS US TO BE FILLED

FILLED WITH LOVE,
