Jesus replied, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.
When you think about bread, we think substance. Most of the time, if you are really hungry, you can grab some toast or some bread slices, put some peanut butter and jam, and the hunger is held off for a while.
So why did the Jesus call himself Bread?
In the verses preceding, the people wanted physical bread in order to be satisfied. In verse 27, Jesus is telling them stop being concerned with food, something that is perishable. But to focus on the eternal.
They still wanted a miraculous sign in order for them to believe. In verse 33, He is the true bread of God, who came down from Heaven to give life.
We are going to eat everyday for the rest of our life. In most of our lives, we have and will at some point eat some bread. I love some bread. It smells good, taste good, and makes you feel full.
Ladies, the best bread I ever received is the Bread of life, when I meet Jesus. I don’t have to be hungry or thirsty no more for anything other than him.
Now, I have hunger and thirst for His word, taking up and serving it on my spiritual platter. Biting and chewing on scripture with you ladies. Sipping on the sweetness of His presence.
Keeping my body full with all the eternal promises He has given me.
Are you living off the right bread? Don’t worry about the physical bread. It will be provided. Focus on the main Bread that leaves you full for eternity.
Eat Eternal Bread
