John 6:35 NLT: 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.
The people of Israel needed to survive in the desert and the Lord gave them mana to eat. It was a typology of what believers will need: the true mana – Jesus Christ. He is the Bread that came down from heaven. Without him, we will have no life. We cannot survive without him. We need him every day of our lives as we journey through this life.
We are to feed on him by studying and listening to his teachings in the scriptures daily. As we do so, we will grow to become like him in our words and actions.
Jesus said to his disciples: Don’t work for the food that spoils. Work for the food that stays good always and gives eternal life….”John 6:27 NCV
Most often we spend alot of time feeding the flesh with food that spoils and neglecting our spirit; not feeding it with food that lasts forever.
Let us resolve this day to pay close attention to our spiritual food which is Jesus Christ in his words.
Declare to yourself loud: Jesus is the source of my life. He is the living bread from God. I will feed my spirit with his words every day. In Jesus name. Hallelujah.
Heavenly Father, thank you for giving us the bread of life: Jesus Christ Our Lord. Help me to stay on the word day and night that I may grow in the knowledge of you. In Jesus Name. Amen.
