True Food True Drink

What do we do when the Gospel doesn’t work?  Use the Gospel.  That might sound like the definition of insanity.  The problem isn’t with the Gospel.  The problem is with our expectation of visible results.  This week in John 6, the crowds aren’t interested in what Jesus has to offer them – namely the Gospel.  He doesn’t back down.  In fact, he doubles down!  There is nothing new in this text than there was last week.  Maybe the imagery that Jesus uses gets more vivid, but that’s it.  This morning we’re going to look at the wisdom of doubling down with God’s Word.  We will also look at the effects of the Law and what happens when people try to use it in place of the Gospel.  There is only one food for your soul – Jesus.
