John 6:35-40

“To trust Him means, of course, trying to do all that He says. There would be no sense in saying you trusted a person if you would not take his advice. Thus if you have really handed yourself over to Him, it must follow that you are trying to obey Him. But trying in a new way, a less worried way.” –C.S. Lewis

Why will those who come to and believe in Jesus no longer hunger or thirst (35)? What does the phrase “the bread of life” mean to you? What are the disciples lacking (36)? What evidence do you think Jesus had in mind when He accused the disciples of doubting? How would you explain the distinction between seeing Jesus and believing in Jesus? What happens to those the Father gives to Jesus (37)? Why has Jesus come down from heaven (38)?

What is God’s will for His life (39-40)? Why do you think Jesus makes the same point twice in verses 39-40? What are some ways the Lord has satisfied your hunger and thirst? In what areas of your life are you guilty of seeing Jesus yet not believing in Him? How does this impact your relationship with the Lord? How might tapping into the power of the Holy Spirit help you to achieve greater belief in Jesus?

Thinking more broadly than going to heaven after you die, what elements of eternal life in Christ do you enjoy today? Take several minutes to praise God for such blessings.
