I Am Bread Of Life

John 6:35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. The one who comes to me will never go hungry, and the one who believes in me will never be thirsty.

The “bread do life.” Bread, made correctly with the right ingredients, is a staple of life. The Hebrews subsisted on it in the form of manna for about 40 years. Jesus isn’t referring to the physical bread for the physical body. He is talking about the spiritual hunger God implanted into every human being. Many seek other things, people or substances to fill that hunger but they don’t fill it. It can be filled only in coming to Jesus, the bread of Life. When we come to Him He promises us we will never be spiritually hungry again. Along with hunger comes thirst. We quench the spiritual thirst as we come to believe IN Jesus. We drink Of Him into us through meditating on His written Word, the Holy Bible, and through prayer and worship. Come and eat and drink of Jesus.
