A Short Sunday Scripture

John 6:35-40
35Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.
36
But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe.
37 All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out.
38
For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will but the will of him who sent me.
39
And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day.
40
For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day."

Isn't that just the most incredibly wonderful news for all who do belong to Him! And the most pressing reason to share Him with all who we care about but yet don't believe!

"Beautiful words . . . wonderful words . . . wonderful words of life," says the old hymn.

"...and I will raise him up on the last day!" What a promise! As I read your post, I started humming the hymn "I am the Bread of Life."
It is one of my favorite communion songs. Thanks for sharing!

AMEN! It is so hard to understand why others have difficulty believing when it is so simple and there for them!

Thank you! I praise Him for what he did for me! It is only by His grace we are saved!

During VBS the kids leaned a song with lyrics that said, "I'm saved by grace through faith."

Poem

Before the world's creation, He chose me for His own,and this He did without a cause, by Sovereign Grace alone.

My place He then appointed, my special work He planned,and what He wills He'll bring to pass, by His almighty hand.

Sometimes by many trials, He works His will in me,
Sometimes in quiet pastures, He leads me tenderly.

His ways I cannot fathom, I do not need to see,By Grace all work together, work only good for me.

And through eternal ages I still shall be His own, His loved,
redeemed, and chosen one, by Sovereign Grace alone.
