Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.”
The people go across the lake in pursuit of Jesus. Jesus tells them they are following Him for the bread and not out of a desire to see God. He tells them not to work for physical food but for the food of eternal life.
They ask Him for another sign so that they can believe in Him, just as Moses gave their ancestors manna in the desert.
Jesus says it was the Father who gave them bread from heaven, and now Jesus Himself is the true bread of life that satisfies spiritual hunger and thirst.
We can be so locked in to our unbelief that the greatest miracles no longer hold any wonder for us. The people who had experienced the feeding of the 5000 ask for a sign that Jesus is the Messiah. How many signs does it take?
Those who are spiritually hungry, the desperate ones, will reach out to Jesus and feast on Him because He really is the bread of life.
When we devote ourselves entirely to serving Him, to intimacy with Him, to following Him, then we are filled with every good thing.
Lord Jesus you really are the bread of life. Thank you that in you I am satisfied. Amen.
As a prisoner for the Lord then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.
Paul urges us to live a life in accordance with our calling as followers of Jesus Christ. We should be humble and gentle with one another, making every effort to live in unity under the one God and Father of us all.
God has given gifts to the church- apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers- to prepare God's people for service and to build up the Body of Christ in unity and maturity.
When we become truly mature we will be growing into Christ and not listening to the vain teaching and scheming of men.
We must learn to live together as christians in genuine unity. For too long, the church has been mired by denominationalism, by envy, by competitiveness, and by false teaching.
If we take this chapter seriously, we will learn to love one another regardless of worship styles and the ways we express our faith.
Most of what divides christians is the superficial and irrelevant. We must learn to be people of love.
True ministers- apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers- will be working to bring the church into unity. Only the false ministers will use their positions to divide the flock of Christ,
Holy Spirit work in my life so that I can love my brothers and sisters. Show me how I can break down barriers to people from other churches and traditions. Amen.
Some people have linked it to racism because he is, you know, indigenous. But that ignores the fact that there are literally dozens of other indigenous players who are warmly loved and respected in the AFL and other sports.
Plus it's a fairly new phenomenon, so maybe Goodes is regarded by the crowd as a boofhead.
Anyway amidst all the soul searching and complaining there is one simple solution to the problem, whatever the cause. I think this kind of booing of an individual in a team sport is bad manners and childish behaviour.
Just announce at the beginning of all games that if people engage in this behaviour the game will stop for 10 minutes. Both teams and all the umpires just walk off. The second time the match is abandoned and competition points divided between the teams.
Simple. But oh so hard because people think they should do what they like without any consequences.
