Augustine once said, "How many there are who seek Jesus, only to gain some temporary gift...Jesus is scarcely sought for Jesus' sake." Have you ever caught yourself putting God to the test? For example, "If I can only do this better, maybe God will give me what I want." Oftentimes, what we really want is never what we need. Jesus' sermon following the famous feeding of the 5,000 in John 6 confronts our misguided motivations for seeking Jesus. This Sunday we explore what we truly need to live a nourished Christian life.

How do we respond to a call? If we hear the Father, then we are called to respond. If we are of the one Spirit, then we are to live differently with one another. If we recognize Jesus as the bread of life, then it is because we have heard the call of God. Calls are not just for the ordained. We are all called; called to be to be transformed into new creatures, called to be imitators of God; and called to walk in love in the unity of the Holy Spirit.

In Sunday’s readings we are reminded that Jesus is the Word of God, Logos, wisdom, inviting us to table. In our Anglican tradition the focus of our Sunday service is not only scripture and teaching, not only worship and music, but is also Eucharist. Every week we are brought face to face with the reality of the Incarnation: Christ crucified, buried, resurrected, ascended and enthroned in glory. Rising from the table, we then turn and face the world: reminded, forgiven, equipped and hopeful.

Simon Peter answered him, “Lord, to whom can we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and know that you are the Holy One of God.”

Our hearts, according to Jesus, are the place from which things that defile us come. This means that it is also the place where things that define us flow, for good or for ill. This week President Jimmy Carter is in the news as he talks about his upcoming battle with cancer. His faith is such that he is at peace with whatever comes. He is secure in God. It seems his heart is well as he has peace. Forgiveness, peace and love flow from a heart that loves God and is expressed in a life that reflects God into the world. This Sunday let us give thanks and pray for hearts that overflow with goodness.
