“Because You Were Filled” ( John 6:28-30, HCSB ) by Carley Evans

I have a few questions:

  1. Who seeks God?
  2. For those who seek Him, what is required of us? What makes us acceptable to God?
  3. When we seek Him, is it miracles and signs we desire? 

After Jesus feeds the 5,000 or perhaps it’s the time He feeds the 4,000, those who follow after Him ask similar questions:

28 “What can we do to perform the works of God?” they ask.

29 Jesus replies, “This is the work of God—that you believe in the One He has sent.”

30 “What sign then are You going to do so we may see and believe You?” they ask. “What are You going to perform?

Jesus answers:

 “I assure you: You are looking for Me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate the loaves and were filled.  Don’t work for the food that perishes but for the food that lasts for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal of approval on Him.” (John 6: 26-27)

    We live in a world of signs seekers and performances… we can so easily forget that all the food we will need for eternity has already been laid out for us 🙂
