As a troubled eater, with years of experience, I especially love this Jesus name, 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, NIV)
Think about this. Bread is a life staple in most countries. Jesus is the unperishable staple of life.
For the bread of God is the bread that comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” (John 6:33, NIV)
Do we see Jesus as more than a shopping list God? He provides beyond the physical. Early followers didn’t understand John 6:33, but Jesus was speaking of his death and his resurrection.
“Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. (John 6:53, NIV)
And then in the Lord’s Prayer, Jesus tells us to pray for our daily bread. Who is our daily bread? Jesus of course!
Dear Bread of Life Jesus; we need you every hour of every day. Come feed us again, Lord. Feed us again and always. Amen.
