Jesus states, “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.”

I had a cousin who we all loved very much, and she would go to church with us as the stock market was rising and stopped going to church as the stock market was declining. She lost quite a bit of money and stopped going to church with us altogether. As she was dying in her early 60’s, we would tell her of the good news of Jesus Christ and to believe in him for eternal life. All the money she had did her no good, and all the faith she lacked may have made her worse.

Father Eymard said it best “We must desire heaven because it is the possession of God; it is the perfect glorification of God. Then there will be no more sins, no more temptations, no more obstacles to his love and ours.”

What obstacles are there in my life keeping me from Jesus? Jesus stated, “This is the work of God, that you believe in the one he sent.”

Let Us Pray:

Dear heavenly Father, please draw our hearts nearer to yours. In the precious name of your son, Jesus. Amen
