The Bread of Life
“I am the bread of life.” —John 6:35
Read John 6:22-37
The Lord Jesus declares that He is the bread of life. Bread in itself is not alive. However, it nourishes our body when we eat it. The Lord Jesus is the living bread, and through His power He nourishes us. This bread will never become stale or mouldy. He said that He was the bread of life, and that meant that He would have to be crushed and ground as wheat, even pulverized on Golgotha’s hill, but it was there He earned salvation for those who hunger and thirst after righteousness.
Are you hungry for the bread of life? This bread will satisfy you completely! Earthly bread cannot do this; hunger pangs come back again and again. But this heavenly bread has eternal value.
Come and listen to the Saviour’s voice which calls us to Himself: “I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst” (John 6:35).
What does the Lord Jesus, as the bread of life mean to you?
