Like a 2×4 to the face

So I was readig and journaling yesterday and came across this passage in John 6.

John 6:27-28

26Jesus answered, “I tell you the truth, you are looking for me, not because you saw miraculous signs but because you ate the loaves and had your fill. 27Do 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.”

So I began to ask myself, Do I desire Jesus because of the blessings he can provide, “because you ate the loaves and had your fill”, or because we want Him?

Ask that question in the context of how you pray for and lead your church, your family, your buisness, and your own life and you will be changed. I know I have desired Jesus for the blessings He can bring and not for who He is.

God help me long for you alone and not the blessings you can provide!

How does that fall on you?
