And he overlaid it with pure gold inside and outside, and made a molding of gold around it. Exodus 37:2 (ESV)
All the gold used in the building of the tabernacle point to God’s majesty, kingdom and sovereignty as king
He made horns for it on its four corners. Its horns were of one piece with it, and he overlaid it with bronze. Exodus 38:2 (ESV)
Bronze speaks of judgement and points to Jesus taking our judgement through his sacrifice on the cross
Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you. For on him God the Father has set his seal.” John 6:27 (ESV)
We should not have our views and goals limited to this life and temporary materialism. Instead we should work and pour our energy into getting the everlasting sustaining food that will give us eternal life and will be our eternal reward… Jesus, the bread of life.
Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. John 6:35 (ESV)
Jesus brings ultimate satisfaction
All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out. John 6:37 (ESV)
We (Disciples of Jesus) are gifts from the Father to his Son. In this verse we can also see God predestined plan to save the elect and the security found in coming to Jesus.
No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him. And I will raise him up on the last day. John 6:44 (ESV)
God is sovereign over salvation and those that are saved, without God’s initiation of drawing someone to Jesus no one could be saved because we would not come in our own will as we are bound under sin and do not desire God naturally. God is glorified in saving us.
Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes has eternal life. John 6:47 (ESV)
The invitation to belive goes out to all, it is not limited to rich, poor, Jewish, Non Jewish etc
