Reading 3, 2 Pet 1: 3-9 : Christian is called to the glory of Jesus

3His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence,
4by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, that through these you may escape from the corruption that is in the world because of passion, and become partakers of the divine nature.
5For this very reason make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge,
6and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness,
7and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love.
8For if these things are yours and abound, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
9For whoever lacks these things is blind and shortsighted and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his old sins.

Gospel, Jn 6: 60-63 : Spirit gives life

60Many of his disciples, when they heard it, said, "This is a hard saying; who can listen to it?"
61But Jesus, knowing in himself that his disciples murmured at it, said to them, "Do you take offense at this?
62Then what if you were to see the Son of man ascending where he was before?
63It is the spirit that gives life, the flesh is of no avail; the words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.
