Read John 6:35 and 41-51


Thursday

Read John 6:35 and 41:51

35 “I am the bread of life,” Jesus told them. “Those who come to me will never be hungry; those who believe in me will never be thirsty.

41 The people started grumbling about him, because he said, “I am the bread that came down from heaven.” 42 So they said, “This man is Jesus son of Joseph, isn't he? We know his father and mother. How, then, does he now say he came down from heaven?”

43 Jesus answered, “Stop grumbling among yourselves. 44 People cannot come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them to me; and I will raise them to life on the last day. 45 The prophets wrote, ‘Everyone will be taught by God.’ Anyone who hears the Father and learns from him comes to me. 46 This does not mean that anyone has seen the Father; he who is from God is the only one who has seen the Father. 47 I am telling you the truth: he who believes has eternal life. 48 I am the bread of life. 49 Your ancestors ate manna in the desert, but they died. 50 But the bread that comes down from heaven is of such a kind that whoever eats it will not die. 51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If you eat this bread, you will live forever. The bread that I will give you is my flesh, which I give so that the world may live.”

Think

In John 4:34 Jesus says: "My food is to do the will of Him who sent me..."  To receive Jesus as bread is to receive Jesus as the living, nourishing, life giving food that is to live in God's way.  Simply in the way of love, generosity, grace and peace.

Pray

Just as the Hebrews ate manna in the desert, please nourish me for my journey into doing your will as I learn that my food is to do your will.  Your grace is always enough.
