In John 6:22-29 we read the Christ going to another area,
and the people who were following him.
Now they were seeking him once they noticed He was no longer with them.
But why where they seeking Him, which kind of nourishment were they hungry for? Apparently not for Spiritual nourishment “which endureth unto everlasting life,"
but for physical “which perisheth.”
Wide is the gate who seek Jesus Christ for what they can physically gain,
such as “profit” (2 Cor. 2:17) and "traditions of men" (Mk. 7:8).
Few therebe that seek Him for knowledge (Jn. 8:32),
His kingdom (Mt. 6:33),
forgiveness of sins (Acts 22:16).
How does one lay up treasures in heaven?
By obeying the gospel (Acts 2:38) and being engaged by the gospel
within His kingdom (“created in Christ Jesus unto good works” Eph. 2:10).
One MUST understand, there is no expiry date on the gospel of Jesus Christ.
It will never surrender its freshness. It will always have the aroma of righteousness,
taste of forgiveness, and joy of heaven.
It remains relevant today as much as it did yesterday and will for all tomorrows.
It will never rot, dissolve, and retire.
Again, it has no expiry date. It is eternal.
This is the very thing we must labour/work for.
And we are told how, in the pages of the Bible.
One MUST also understand, there is an expiry date on all of us (Rom. 3:23, 6:23).
The One who is the WAY (Jn. 14:6) can remove our debt.
He commanded, and showed us how.
"Whoever believes and is immersed shall be saved."
If you obey and live by this simple and loving gospel, you are sealed in God.
Would you like to be sealed in Jesus Christ?
