Jesus answered them: In all truth I tell you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven, it is my Father who gives you the bread from heaven, the true bread;
for the bread of God is the bread which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.
‘Sir,’ they said, ‘give us that bread always.’
Jesus answered them: I am the bread of life. No one who comes to me will ever hunger; no one who believes in me will ever thirst.John 6:32-35
This is one of my favourite chapters of St John’s Gospel.
This dialogue in the quoted verses, happens between Jesus and the crowd after He multiplies bread and fish to feed the five thousand.
Jesus takes this teaching moment to explain the deeper meaning of the miracle that He performed.
As the crowd compared the miracle to the miracle of manna which God provided in the desert, through Moses, Jesus explains He has something even deeper to give them.
Eventually Jesus reveals Himself to them as the Bread of Life; the true bread that comes down from Heaven and gives life to the world.
There are multiple interpretations of what Jesus meant here, as someone who is simple minded (with little wisdom of my own), I simply choose to accept what Jesus said.
He is the Bread of Life!
Whoever comes to Him will never hunger and whoever believes in Him will never thirst.
So today, I drop any intelligence of my own, and simply come to Jesus to feed me that I may eat of Him Who is the true bread.
Jesus, LORD here I am. I believe all that you have said to me that You are the Bread of Life.
Feed me, LORD! Give me to drink, LORD!
Let me eat of the Bread which comes down from Heaven that I may never hunger or thirst.
Thank You for calling me to Yourself.
I receive You and thank You for giving Yourself to me.
Always & Forever,
To the Lamb,
With all my ❤
