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.
This past week we talked about food... Most of us love a hot, fluffy, sweet, Krispy Kreme donut. Others can't resist ice cream, or maybe a perfectly cooked steak. However, we all have cravings deep within that can't be satisfied by food or any other earthly item. Our only hope is Jesus, the bread of life.
In John 6, we see that a group of people are seeking Jesus. However, they ultimately wanted Jesus' gifts (physical bread), not Jesus Himself. As only Jesus can, He corrects their wrong motives and points out that He is the only one who can offer "bread of life" that eternally satisfies.
Nothing in this world can satisfy except for Jesus, the bread of life. Drugs, sex, alcohol, money, power, fame, relationships, etc. will never satisfy our deepest need. Our only hope is Jesus. Jesus is both the giver and the gift. Will you receive this gift? We invite you to feast daily on Jesus, the bread of life.
