As we continue our sermon series in John’s Gospel, we’re going to see that Jesus is the bread of life and that He alone can satisfy the longings of our soul.
Many times, even as Christians, we seek to satisfy ourselves with the material things of life and not the spiritual. All through John’s Gospel, Jesus uses examples in the material world to teach us spiritual truths. But He always spurs us on to not fall into the trap of finding our worth in the material things of this life.
Those who were following Jesus wanted a material king for a physical kingdom. That’s not why Jesus came. His kingdom is not of this world. When the multitudes began to realize that Jesus wasn’t who they wanted Him to be, almost all of them forsook Him. Unfortunately, only a handful of disciples were left after hearing this “difficult” teaching. May we be a people whose lives demonstrate to the world that we are true followers Jesus Christ!
