TOPIC: THE BETTER BREAD
BIBLE TEXT: “For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world” (John 6:33).
TEXT: John 6: 25-35
Many people followed Jesus because of physical bread. They failed to realize that there is a better Bread. Unfortunately the story has not changed even today. People are more concerned about material blessings than the eternal life which the better Bread can offer to humanity. Ignatius of Antioch submits as follows: ”I have no taste for corruptible food nor for the pleasures of this life. I desire the Bread of God, which is the Flesh of Jesus Christ, who was of the seed of David, and for drink I desire His Blood, which is love incorruptible.”
True disciples of Christ desire the bread of life more than the physical bread which cannot give them eternal life. Jesus said we should seek first the Kingdom of God, and every other thing will be given to us at the appropriate time. The Bread of life is Jesus Christ, our Saviour. He is the image of the invisible God. Believe in Jesus to be saved today, and you will be fed with the Bread of heaven.
CHALLENGE: Bread of heaven gives eternal life.
QUOTE: True disciples of Christ desire the bread of life.
PRAYER: Ever more give us this bread O God!
