Monday of the 3rd Week of Easter


Acts 6:8-15 ;

 Psalm 119:23-24, 26-27, 29-30;

Gospel JN 6:22-29


[After Jesus had fed the five thousand men, his disciples saw him walking on the sea.] The next day, the crowd that remained across the sea saw that there had been only one boat there, and that Jesus had not gone along with his disciples in the boat, but only his disciples had left. Other boats came from Tiberias near the place where they had eaten the bread when the Lord gave thanks. When the crowd saw that neither Jesus nor his disciples were there, they themselves got into boats and came to Capernaum looking for Jesus. And when they found him across the sea they said to him, "Rabbi, when did you get here?" Jesus answered them and said, "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. Do not work for food that perishes but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you.  For on him the Father, God, has set his seal." So they said to him, "What can we do to accomplish the works of God?" Jesus answered and said to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in the one he sent."


JESUS and AAP


Some of us love AAP (Aam Aadmi Parti- A political Party in India) where as others love to hate it and its leader Arvind Kajeriwal. The reason for the success of AAP is very simple. Mr. Kajeriwal showed it to the people that any common man/woman, by his/her determination and hard work can reach to the power centre of the country. Whether Kajeriwal is genuine or not in his efforts will be proved only by the passage of time.


One of the great things that Jesus did during His earthly life was that he made each person realise that he/she can have a loving relationship with God.

Prior to today’s Gospel account, Jesus had multiplied bread and fed five thousand. The people were in search of him so that they will get more bread. The vision of the people was limited. They were taught so by the elders and leaders; to relate with God only to fulfil one’s material needs. Jesus asks them to transcend their vision. He teaches them that we must work to have eternal food. To fulfil the will of God is the only way for it. And as we see, once people realised it, they were ready to live it (v.28).


It is a fact that there is lot of misery in this world. The greatest and simplest solution for it is to help people to enter in a loving relationship with God. How much sinful we may be, we can have loving relationship with him just as the prodigal son had. How much weak we are we can relate with him in love just as Peter did. How much late we were to love him, he will reward us just as he rewarded equally all the labourers worked in his vineyard.


Loving relationship with God will transcend our earthly needs and will help us to aspire for eternal things.
