The Bread of Life

Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.

John 6:35

The day before He said these words, Jesus had fed the five thousand, and now they wanted Him to do it again. But Jesus had not come to earth to be a meal ticket; He had a much more important mission than that.

In the ancient Near East, bread was a symbol of life, for if you had a loaf of bread, you would not starve that day; Jesus was intent of giving Himself so that Mankind could live not for a single day, or even a week, but for all eternity. Yet, there is a catch!

We must go to Him in belief; we must accept the gift of grace He offers.

Most of the people who had gathered on that day long ago did not accept His gift, yet it is still available to us today… will we receive it?  Each person must decide that for him or herself in this life. For those of us who have accepted His gift of eternal life already, there is a second question to be answered: Will we share the gift, or will we keep it for ourselves only?

Of course, all who read this already know their answer: Who will we share Jesus with today?
