The Bread of Life
Jesus Christ is the Bread of Life. I read His words as recorded in John 6 verse 35: "Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst. 36“But I said to you that you have seen Me, and yet do not believe. 37“All that the Father gives Me will come to Me, and the one who comes to Me I will certainly not cast out. 38“For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. 39“This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up on the last day. 40“For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day.”
Jesus Christ is the Bread of Life. If we believe in Him we will never thirst and we will never hunger. Jesus Christ is also the Word of God and man shall not live from bread alone but from every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. Jesus Christ will come and live with and in every person who believes in Him, who obeys Him and who invites Him into his life. Such a person will never thirst and will never hunger because Jesus will dwell in him. He promised His Holy Spirit to fill such a person. Streams of Living Water that will fill the belly of such a person, will bubble up and overflow from his mouth. That is the Spirit of the Living God, Christ in us, to those who believe in Him and who obey Him. But most believers do not really believe because they do not obey Jesus Christ. They do not experience that LIFE.
His sheep hear His voice and they follow Him. He guides them and He supplies in all their needs. They never hunger, they never thirst and He gives them eternal life.
Do you truly believe? Are you filled with the Holy Spirit? Do you hear His voice ? Do you eat of the Bread of Life every day? Are you eating from the table of God? Do you receive the Word of God, the Bread of Life every day? Do you truly believe?
If you do not have that close relationship with Jesus Christ where you hear His voice, listen to Him, follow Him and eat the Bread of Life every day, you do not have LIFE in you and you will perish.
Seek Jesus, obey Him, follow Him and He will fill you with the Bread of Life because He Himself is the Bread of Life.
May Jesus bless you.
