Read John 6
After the 5,000 were miraculously fed, they desired to be fed continuously. They seek Jesus because He provided immediate fulfillment of food, but Christ challenges them to labor for food that endures to everlasting life. Those who desired to do God’s work asked Jesus the question, “What should we do?” (v. 28b) Jesus’ answer is the best ever: “This is the only work God wants from you: Believe in the one he has sent.” (v. 29) BAM! The only thing they must do for this eternal life is to believe.
