Read the sermon text: John 6:22-40

Read the sermon summary: In this passage Jesus confronts the crowds for following him only because they ate the loaves of bread and were satisfied (see John 6:1-21). He challenges them to work for that which is true bread which endures to eternal life and then proclaims that he is the bread of life who has come down from heaven. And notice the work required to receive this bread. It is simply believing… receiving. In other words, the work of God which is required of people is to gladly receive, eat, and enjoy the bread of life, Jesus Christ. The work, then, is not a burden, but a delight. It is immensely satisfying and filled with pleasure. In preparing for the sermon, consider the following questions: According to Jesus’ words, why don’t the crowds believe in him even though they have seen him? What is the outline of the conversation between Jesus and the crowd… can you track to flow of it? How do we see the cooperation of Father and Son in the work of those who come to Jesus?
 
Read the following song lyrics in relation to the sermon:

Lord I Need You
Lord I come I confess
Bowing here I find my rest
And without You I fall apart
You're the one that guides my heart

Lord I need You oh I need You
Ev'ry hour I need You
My one defense my righteousness
Oh God how I need You
 
Where sin runs deep Your grace is more
Where grace is found is where You are
And where You are Lord I am free
Holiness is Christ in me
Where You are Lord I am free
Holiness is Christ in me
 
So teach my song to rise to You
When temptation comes my way
And when I cannot stand I'll fall on You
Jesus You're my hope and stay
And when I cannot stand I'll fall on You
Jesus You're my hope and stay

Lord I need You oh I need You
Ev'ry hour I need You
My one defense my righteousness
Oh God how I need You
My one defense my righteousness
Oh God how I need You
