John 6:25-71

We find out in this chapter what Jesus thinks of Himself. 

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

Jesus had performed a miracle and fed the 5000 just the day before. They wanted breakfast!!! Then He tells them He has God’s seal of approval. 

Verse 29 tells us about works:

[29] Jesus answered, “The work of God is this:to believe in the one he has sent.”

Phrases: [35] “I Am the bread of life.” 

[38] For I have come down from heaven.”

HUGE verse: [44]  “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day.

Let’s stop here today and camp. There are two parts to this verse. 

1. The Father must do the drawing; we cannot come on our own-we cannot even want to!

2. Only God can do that kind or raising. What was Jesus saying? That He is God!

I get the impression that people think that Jesus was a good person who hinted at His Godhood. NOT SO! He came right out and told them. He was either a liar, a lunatic, or Lord. I believe the last one. 😌
