Read John 6:22-38

But don’t be so concerned about perishable things like food. Spend your energy seeking the eternal life that the Son of Man can give you. For God the Father has given me the seal of his approval.” – John 6:27 (NLT)

God’s working doesn’t depend on the power structures, or the powerful people, of this world. He’s not looking for great men (and women). He’s looking for believers, who will follow obediently with their eyes fixed on the eternal, not the perishable. So put your energy into seeking the eternal bread of life, and God’s approval..
