But don’t be so concerned about perishable things like food. Spend your energy seeking the eternal life that the Son of Man can give you John 6:27 NLT
Wow! This crowd saw Jesus! They ate the perishable food He provided! But when He made the distinction between the bread that perishes and the Bread of eternal life, the crowd began to murmur and complain! They wanted Him to supply food that decays quickly; He wanted to supply them with the food that leads to eternal life. It was a conflict in agenda’s! The end result was that even Jesus, “lost the crowd”. As it is written,
At this point many of his disciples turned away and deserted him. John 6:66
You would think that the Son of God would have known how to keep His followers happy.
Why are You irritating the crowds, Jesus? Just give them what they want, and they will stay with you.
Dear ones… the crowd is fickle! They want Jesus for the perishable things, but always reject the eternal! They were after Jesus for the perishable things; were disappointed and left when they didn’t get it. That leads me to this question:
What perishable thing am I so upset about if I don’t get it??
