Illustration that our earthly fleshly desires are working against us
You have a plate of your favorite food in front of you and you have a page out of the bible that says John chapter 6. What is more appealing to you???
You have to know what Jesus can fully offer you

We need to be guided by the Word of God not our feelings or opinions
Jesus is rebuking the people for thinking that the kingdom is purely materialistic v. 15
4.15 women at the well, elevate frequent trips to the well everyday,
Spring of water welling up to eternal life
6.26 got food miraculously from Jesus
Jesus sustains our life so that it goes on into eternity
Tell us what works God requires and we will do them V.28
Eternal life is first and foremost a gift within the ability of the Son of Man.
The Work of God is Faith V. 29
Not a faith, “that is abstract” or out there

Jesus is the one who reveals God to us
He has been in heaven and was sent from there so that the world might be saved through him.
God requires Faith, Not works
