Keeping it short and sweet today.

In today's gospel, Jesus calls some folks out. They follow Him across the sea to Capernaum after they feeding of the 5,000. 

"Amen, amen, I say to you, you are looking for me not because you saw signs but because you ate the loaves and were filled."

The people don't care about Jesus; they care about what He can do for them, but still He offers them an invitation, 

"Do not work for food that perishes but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you (His very flesh in the Eucharist). .... This is the work of God, that you believe in the one he sent."

Why do you consider yourself a Christian? Is it because God makes you feel good? Is it because He helps you get through sticky situations? Don't get me wrong, those things are all fine and good, but there's something more.

A disciple of Christ is one who recognizes his or her own sinfulness and need for a savior and places his or her trust, love, and wholehearted belief that Jesus came, died, and rose from the dead to save His beloved from their sin.

Do you love God for what He does? Or do you love Him for who He is? Take this question to prayer today.
