Jesus and crowds

The interesting picture in John 6 with Jesus and crowds is that Jesus knew they were following him because of the signs and the food. He then worked to thin it down. If they didn’t understand the full ramifications of the Kingdom, he wanted them to quit hanging around.

He is working on them to get away from the shallow pursuits. It works so well… it thins the crowd out to where he’s looking at his disciples and they are thinning out as well (Jn. 6:66).

Are we looking for words of life… or just the next big flash we can have “leave us in awe?”

WHY are we attaching ourselves to Jesus?
