Ancient Posse – Good News for April 19

19 04 2010

John 6:22-29

The next day (after Jesus feed 5,000 with a couple of fish and a few loaves), the crowd that remained across the sea saw that there had been only one boat there, and that Jesus had not gone along with his disciples in the boat, but only his disciples had left. Other boats came from Tiberias near the place where they had eaten the bread when the Lord gave thanks.

When the crowd saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they themselves got into boats and came to Capernaum looking for Jesus. And when they found him across the sea they said to him, “Rabbi, when did you get here?”

Jesus answered them and said, “Amen, amen, I say to you, you are looking for me not because you saw signs but because you ate the loaves and were filled. Do not work for food that perishes but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him the Father, God, has set his seal.”

So they said to him, “What can we do to accomplish the works of God?”

Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in the one he sent.”

The Daily Path: Jesus had a posse. Just like today’s sports stars in the NBA and NFL, Jesus had a bunch of hangers-on looking to feed off of his star. In today’s Gospel reading, Jesus tells them to get a life… a true life that focuses on God, not the glittering “bling” of this earth. Now that’s a role model!
