Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.”

– John 6:27 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

Jesus was bringing to His disciples attention that even though they were attracting crowds, most of the multitude were only motivated by self interest. The food that they were after would only last a day, but Jesus is offering us food that endures to eternal life. Jesus reminds us that His kingdom does not revolve around us, but Him, and that the God kind of life takes time and effort. Don’t set yourself up for disappointment due to shallow expectations. Learn to deny yourself, take up your cross, and follow Him today.
