31. JCH6: 36-59
CHRIST was explaining the dynamics of His works and responsibilities to people in order to apprise them of what GOD has sent HIM to do. Even CHRIST who is GOD had His work description laid out for HIM. HE made it clear that His source of living was from GOD and the reason for living must be lived out as planned by the ONE who gives Life.
Also, it is GOD that works in us both to will and to do according to His pleasures. It is GOD that stirs the hearts of men to move closer to CHRIST and share in the Life of GOD. This shows that people must believe on their own accord even as GOD causes a hunger and thirst in their hearts so as to draw them to CHRIST. And on getting to CHRIST, the Eternal Bread will be dished out to everyone.
“For GOD so loved the world that He gave them His only Son (Bread of Life), that whosoever believes (Eat) will not perish but have everlasting Life.”
CHRIST’ work is also our work. We are to bring people to the Father and as many that see CHRIST in us and believe that He is the Son of GOD as well as the eternal life. We must do everything in our capacity to let them take part in the Bread of Life. This is our responsibility even according to the great commission. Whatever we have been save to do must culminate to bringing others to join us as we dine with CHRIST. Wherever we are, His Bread and Blood must be with us always and this can only be done by embodying the Life of CHRIST given to Him by the FATHER.
And how we let them take part is by speaking the Word of GOD to them. Romans 10: 9-15. On the Day of the LORD, whatever we do would either stand against or for us . . . as many as GOD wants to bring to Himself through us, we must let Him bring them to Himself by obeying His Words and by spreading His Gospel – that CHRIST died for our sins on the cross of Calvary that we may live a new life in GOD through CHRIST. Our work has already been cut out for us although we may find different means as led by the HOLY SPIRIT.
LORD, increase my faith in YOU as YOU draw more souls to YOURSELF through me. Let people see YOUR Son JESUS CHRIST in me!
