When they found him on the other side of the lake, they asked him, “Rabbi, when did you get here?” Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, you are looking for me, not because you saw the sings I performed but because you ate the loaves and had your fill. Don’t be concerned about perishable things like food. Spend your energy seeking the eternal life that the Son of Man can give you. For on him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.” John 6:25-27
There are depths to God’s nature that ho human could ever estimate, but few people have taken the time and gone to the trouble of getting to know God to the best of their ability. They believe Him and yet refuse to totally and unconditionally entrust their lives to Him. They say they trust God and yet worry themselves sick about many things. (This sounds like many of us) They are surrounded by the glory of the living God, and yet they become involved in petty religious issues that dishonor His name.
One of the most glorious facts about Christ’s teachings is their simplicity. Jesus invites the human being to a new and blessed relationship with the living God and Father. One of the basic requirements for their relationship is sincere spiritual hunger and willingness to accept Jesus as Redeemer and Savior.
This acceptance is not the result of an emotional experience or following a specific religious formula, but total and unconditional surrender to the Father. You should get into the habit of speaking to God as you go about your daily tasks, like you would speak to a friend, which is exactly what God is. As you start having more intimate fellowship with Him, He will become more of a reality to you, until every aspect of your life is made holy by God’s presence and you are ready for your eternal destination.
Grace and Peace to You My Friends Eileen
