30 So they said to him, “What sign are you going to give us then,
so that we may see it and believe you? What work are you performing?
31 Our ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written,
“He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’ ”
32 Then Jesus said to them, “Very truly, I tell you,
it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven,
but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven.
33 For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven
and gives life to the world.”
34 They said to him, “Sir, give us this bread always.”
35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life.
Whoever comes to me will never be hungry,
and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.
36 But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe.
37 Everything that the Father gives me will come to me,
and anyone who comes to me I will never drive away;
38 for I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will,
but the will of him who sent me.
39 And this is the will of him who sent me,
that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me,
but raise it up on the last day.
40 This is indeed the will of my Father,
that all who see the Son and believe in him may have eternal life;
and I will raise them up on the last day.”
The person who believes in Jesus as the great atoning sacrifice,
shall be perfectly satisfied, and never more feel misery of mind.
All the guilt of his sins shall be blotted out,
and his soul shall be purified unto God; and,
being enabled to love him with all his heart, he shall rest, fully,
supremely, and finally happy, in his God.
