Reflecting on the Names and Nature of God
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."
Jesus is the Bread who gives eternal life to those who believe in Him; you must believe in Him to get it. He is satisfying Bread who gives inner happiness; you must enjoy Him to get it. He is also strength-giving Bread to build you up and give you energy to serve God; you must learn of Him to get it. Jesus is resurrection Bread who gives you life now and life in the future. “Whoever eats My flesh . . . I will raise him up at the last day” (John 6:54). So, eat the Bread of Jesus; it will give you confidence, and in the future, you’ll rise in the Resurrection. When you eat of Jesus, you’ll find strength through your personal relationship with Him.
Lord, I’m weak; I need Bread to give me strength for today. Lord, when I get my eyes off You, I hunger for the things of this life. My unfilled desire makes me miserable. Teach me to eat the Bread of life so that I can experience spiritual satisfaction of the soul.
Jesus is supernatural Bread. Those who eat the Bread of Jesus are strengthened to run, work and wrestle (Philippians 4:13). When you eat the Bread of Jesus, you have new purpose in your life to overcome obstacles and limitations. When you eat the Bread of Jesus, you have a supernatural life, because He will live in you and you’ll live in Him. Are you hungry for Him today?
Bread of life, I am hungry; fill me. I am weak; strengthen me. Come fulfill Your life through me. Amen.
Jesus is Bread to give you life.
