John 6:27 - Food and Life!!!

Joh.6:27: Food and Life!!!

John 6:27 (KJV)  Labour not for the meat which perisheth, but 
for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of 
man shall give unto you. 

Jesus put his command in one sentence. "Don't work for the food 
which perishes but for that which lasts for ever and gives eternal 
life." Long ago a prophet called Isaiah had asked:  "Why do you spend 
your money for that which is not bread?  and your labour for that 
which does not satisfy?" (Isa 55:2).  There are two kinds of hunger. 
There is physical hunger which physical food can satisfy; but there is 
a spiritual hunger which that food can never satisfy. A man may be 
as rich as Croesus and still have an incompleteness in his life. 
[Barclay Commentary] 

The prayer for daily bread includes not only food to sustain the 
body, but that spiritual bread which will nourish the soul unto life 
everlasting. Jesus bids us, "Labor not for the meat which perisheth, but for 
that meat which endureth unto everlasting life." John 6:27. He says, 
"I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat 
of this bread, he shall live forever." Verse 51. Our Saviour is the 
bread of life, and it is by beholding His love, by receiving it into 
the soul, that we feed upon the bread which came down from heaven.  
We receive Christ through His word, and the Holy Spirit is given to 
open the word of God to our understanding, and bring home its truths 
to our hearts. We are to pray day by day that as we read His word, 
God will send His Spirit to reveal to us the truth that will 
strengthen our souls for the day's need.  MB112-113 

But you shouldn't be so concerned about perishable things like 
food. No, spend your energy seeking the eternal life that I, the 
Messiah, can give you. John 6:27 (TLB)
