“I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE.”
JOHN 6:48, NKJV
Do you know that God never disappoints?
To the lost, He is salvation. To the thirsty, He is living water. To the hungry, He is the bread of life.
We want to touch on that last phrase in particular in today’s devotional. Throughout the Old Testament, we see just how important bread was as a source of daily food and sustenance, which makes these words from Jesus all the more significant...
“Most assuredly, I say to you, Moses did not give you the bread from heaven, but My Father gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.
Then they said to Him, “Lord, give us this bread always.”
And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.” John 6:32-35, NKJV
Through this passage, Jesus clearly shows us how a relationship with Him is so much more than something we do on the side or someone we visit with once a week at church.
We need Jesus every day. He is our living water and bread of life—our source for everything we need.
Fasting reminds us of this. Every time we’re hungry or want something we’re fasting from, we can be reminded of our need for God and His Word as the sustaining source in our lives.
