  The True Bread
 
 

Jesus, The True Bread of Life

 
 

        Nothing satisfies the body like a warm slice of freshly baked homemade bread. Nothing satisfies the soul like Jesus. In the gospel of John 6:32b-35; 47-51, Jesus says, ‘my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is He which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.’ Then said they unto Him, ‘Lord, evermore give us this bread.’ And Jesus said unto them, ‘I am the bread of life: he that cometh to Me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on Me shall never thirst…Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on Me hath everlasting life. I am that bread of life. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread, which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, He shall live forever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.’ Jesus willingly gave His flesh on the cross of Calvary, shedding His precious blood to pay our sin debt.

 

        Note that Jesus said, ‘I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever.’ These powerful words came from Jesus’ own mouth, revealing His purpose for coming to this sin cursed earth, to be the Savior for all who come to Him. We have all heard the most famous verse in John: ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life’ John 3:16. Won’t you trust Christ to give you this eternal life?

 

       Nothing else in this world satisfies. Nothing else in this world will give everlasting life. Many in this world think everlasting life comes from good works, good deeds, faithful service, church membership, or baptism. Romans 10:9 states, ‘That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.’ That is it!! Believe in the death, burial, and resurrection of God’s precious Son. Jesus is all we need. Jesus alone is the door to Heaven.

 

       The devil hates you and wants you in Hell with him. He always tries to confuse, destroy, and offer an empty substitute for salvation. Even our grocery store bread, for example is a perfect illustration of what man has done to God’s wonderful provision for our bodies. Stripping the wheat of its power to strengthen & nourish our bodies, all the bran, germ, and nutrients are extracted, leaving the consumer with dead, bleached white powder with a few fake, chemical vitamins added for ‘enrichment’. Don’t be duped by the devil & his tricks. Anything he offers is lifeless, leading to a crash course ending in eternal destruction. The Bible says there is pleasure in sin for a season. Like springtime in Alaska, sin’s season is short-lived, usually with disastrous results. Jesus said, in John 14:6, ‘I am the way, the truth and the life. No man cometh unto the Father but by Me.’ That is the plain and simple truth. Pray asking Jesus to forgive you of your sin, trusting Him & Him alone to give you eternal life. Now that you are saved, walk in truth.

 

   John wrote in III John 4, ‘I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.’ We would have no greater joy than to assist you in a new walk with Jesus
