THE Promise – Good News for April 29

29 04 2009

John 6:35-40

Jesus said to the crowds, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst. But I told you that although you have seen me, you do not believe. Everything that the Father gives me will come to me, and I will not reject anyone who comes to me, because I came down from heaven not to do my own will but the will of the one who sent me.

And this is the will of the one who sent me, that I should not lose anything of what he gave me, but that I should raise it on the last day. For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in him may have eternal life, and I shall raise him on the last day.”

The Daily Path: Here’s the iron clad promise straight from Christ:

“I will not reject anyone who comes to me. Everyone who believes in me may have eternal life.”

This has been a particularly challenging week for me. It’s only Wednesday but it feels like a month of Fridays compressed into the past 48 hours. I share this because today’s gospel arrived right on schedule… at a time when I desperately needed to close my ears to all the noise and just focus on THE one true promise.

Jesus is the bakeryman. His bread is what sustains me.

Room to Chat: Father in heaven, you are the greatest. Please find it in your heart to forgive all my screw ups and give me what I need. Shower me with the grace to forgive and keep you first in my heart.
