THE BREAD OF LIFE
“And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. John 6:35″
The Bread of life refers to the spiritual food offered by Christ. By eating the spiritual food, we will have eternal life because we gain faith through the spiritual food He offers. This spiritual food is offered through Christ’s human nature, which He gave up on the Cross to pay the price for the sins of the world. Man needs to receive the grace and Spirit of Christ to ensure salvation. The primary meaning of this revelation about the Bread of life expressed metaphorically, is that to have everlasting life we must receive Jesus, all of Jesus—His teaching, His redemptive work, His commandments into the innermost part of our being. Jesus is speaking here about total assimilation of a complete identification with Himself, His teaching, His passion, cross and resurrection, and His commands. We must receive Him and submit to Him on His terms and not on ours.
Dearly beloved, Jesus, the Bread of Life, offered to be broken for you. He died in your place and mine. Whether you believe Him or not, He died for you. If you have never publicly accepted Christ as your Saviour, please come to Him today, it may be late tomorrow. PRAYER
O Lord, feed me with the bread of life until I want no more. Amen
