What is the food that endures to eternal life? (v.27) Jesus declares that He too is as meek as Moses – He has come to do God’s will. Jesus concludes his discourse with a reference to the last day.
“Jesus said to them, ‘I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst.'”
Back in chapter 4 we read that Jesus is the water of life.
And here we read that Jesus is the bread of life.
Jesus satisfies eternity that is set in our hearts. The longing for what is more than what we eat and drink, for what is more than our broken humanity.
In Him we find true meaning. True happiness. True rest from our spiritual hunger and thirst.
This is our Saviour!
* Dear Lord God,
Please help us to see Jesus today.
Help us to tell others about Him, the bread of life.
Thank You for saving us from our sin.
