Bread of Life
WOW! There is nothing better in the world than to know that, in Jesus, we have everything we need! He offers us the true bread from Heaven, which gives life to the world. He says, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” In the Lord’s Prayer, we ask God to give us our daily bread. His bread is His Word, which feeds our souls. That’s why I am most connected to God when I am in His Word.
Communion is a special time when I connect with God. I am so humbled and honored to have the opportunity to experience and live out His promise, “Anyone who eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him.”
Just as in these Scriptures, when people questioned His truth, Jesus continues to tell us the truth over and over again. And even if we still question and complain at times, He forgives us! He promises, “And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins” (Jeremiah 31:34).
What an amazing God we have! Unconditional love!
