Jesus answered them and said,
“Most assuredly, I say to you, you seek Me,
not because you saw the signs,
but because you ate of the loaves and were filled.
Do not labor for the food which perishes,
but for the food which endures to everlasting life,
which the Son of Man will give you,
because God the Father has set His seal on Him.”
God the Father has given us His Son, the bread of life. Jesus Christ is the true bread from heaven. The Father is of Jesus Christ is our Father. We cannot make a mistake in identifying our Father as long as we consider the God the Father of Jesus Christ as our Father. We believe in God and we believe also in Jesus Christ. (John 14:1) What if we don’t believe in the words of Jesus Christ about His Father? We are then, totally in the dark in identifying the God the Father. We know the true God the Father through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Jesus Christ is the Word of God and nothing else. The Word that was with God from the beginning is the bread of Life. Anyone or anything that grabs the title of being the Word of God is a blasphemy. Let us not call a book or an object as the Word of God. Man shall not live by (natural) bread alone but by every word that proceeded from the mouth of God. The bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.
The teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ are the words of God the Father. Jesus did not give His personal opinion or private interpretation on anything He said. His will was always subjected to the will of His Father. All of His words were perfectly delivered and measured with precision. No wasted words. Every word is bound to come to pass. All His words came from the God the Father fresh and pure. He didn’t open His mouth for nothing. His words are not very many, in fact they can be stored in our memory with the help of the Holy Spirit.
Then Jesus said to them,
“Most assuredly, I say to you,
Moses did not give you the bread from heaven,
but My Father gives you the true bread from heaven.
For the bread of God is He who comes down
from heaven and gives life to the world.”
Then they said to Him, “Lord, give us this bread always.”
And Jesus said to them,
“I am the bread of life.
He who comes to Me shall never hunger,
and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.
But I said to you that you have seen Me and yet do not believe.
All that the Father gives Me will come to Me,
and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out.
For I have come down from heaven,
not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.
This is the will of the Father who sent Me,
that of all He has given Me I should lose nothing,
but should raise it up at the last day.
And this is the will of Him who sent Me,
that everyone who sees the Son and
believes in Him may have everlasting life;
and I will raise him up at the last day.”
