Topic: I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE
Bible Reading: John 6:32-35
📖32….”Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.
📖33….For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.
📖34….Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.
📖35….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.”
🔥The only reason people run helter-skelter is to live, and to live well. But the secret of living well is hidden in the owner of life. In Luke 12:16-21, a rich man made bigger barns to store goods that he would eat to make him to last longer, without regarding the owner of the life he was trying to prolong. But because he didn’t reckon with the owner of his life in the wealth he had (Luke 12:21), God, the owner of the life he was trying to prolong, came and took his life in verse 20. In verse 32 of John 6, many people in Jesus’ time and even now, thought and think respectively that, their hands, or men have provided for them. But Jesus clarified the then people that, except the provision comes from heaven, it doesn’t have eternal value.
🔥🔥Jesus is the bread of life because he came directly from God. He was begotten, conceived or impregnated into Mary by God the Father…Luke 1:35, John 1:18 & 3:16. Since he came from God as God’s word (John 1:14), then man can also live by it. Because, according to Jesus in Matthew 4:4, man cannot live by man-made bread, because it comes from man. But man can only live by the bread that comes from God. This bread is Jesus Christ. Jesus said that they that ate the manna are dead…John 6:49, because it was a dead bread that couldn’t survive till morning…Exodus 16:19-20. Whereas, Jesus is a living bread…John 6:51. Once this bread touches our living faith, the result is eternal life.
🔥🔥🔥What attracts man to food, is the physical life it tends to restore. But Eve missed life by eating the tree of death (Gen 3:1-6); a tree that kills (Gen 2:17) rather than restore life. God expected Adam and her to eat the tree of life (Gen 2:9). The bread of life today, alludes to the tree of life in Eden. So, Christ as the bread of life symbolizes the fruit of the tree of life. He is the living bread that is nourished by the life in himself. He is the bread of life given by God to the spiritual Israel called the Church. As we eat him by faith, we shall lack nothing.
🙏Heavenly father, in my state of hunger and thirst, kindly satisfy and quench my urge with your living bread of life, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Precious Redeemer, burden me to always be rich unto you, for your eternal life to be sustained in me while I live in the flesh, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏O Lord, guide me to your living bread, against receiving and eating dead word, messages and anointing, so I don’t live a dead life, in Jesus’ name.
