John 6:27–40 6:27–40 http://bible.oremus.org/?ql=166084592

“Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you.” John 6:27


 Creator God,

Too often I work for the food that perishes.

I work for food that is rotten,

Food that tastes like cardboard,

The food that does not satiate.

 Redeemer God,

What is this food you have offered?

A food that fills,

A food that gives life,

A food that endures for eternal life?

I cannot wrap my mind around it…

Yet I desire to receive it.

Sustainer God,

I open my hands

To let go of empty work and empty food.

I open my heart and my mind.

Humbly coming to you

For I am hungry,

And believing in you

For I am thirsty.


 Thank you for your immeasurable gift.



“This is indeed the will of my Father, that all who see the son and believe in him may have eternal life; and I will raise them up on the last day.” John 6:40
