4. Bread of Life – John 6:35
4. Bread of Life – “Then Jesus declared, ‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.’” John 6:35
After Jesus fed the 5,000 people flocked to him. They want his free meal program. Wouldn't you? You never have to work again! Why not make this man king or president? You could really live on free bread and fishsticks.
But Jesus tried to tell them that if they should follow him not because he gives free food but because he can give them life. He is like the life giving Manna that fell from earth in the wilderness except the life he brings is abundant and eternal!
I praise God for Jesus who gives life. May God bless you as you discover Jesus, the bread of life today.
PRAYER THOUGHT: Dear Holy Lord, I am hungry for you. I hunger for your word. I hunger for life. Give me today the bread that I need to live...truly live. And help me to share that bread with others who are starving and may not even know it. I love you, Lord. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
