John 6:35-40 NLT
Jesus replied, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. But you haven’t believed in me even though you have seen me. However, those the Father has given me will come to me, and I will never reject them. For I have come down from heaven to do the will of God who sent me, not to do my own will. And this is the will of God, that I should not lose even one of all those he has given me, but that I should raise them up at the last day. For it is my Father’s will that all who see his Son and believe in him should have eternal life. I will raise them up at the last day.”
Reflection . . .
Jesus is the Bread of Life!
Bread is a symbol for food that gives energy and ultimately strength for life. Water is essential to the body for life because so much of the human body is made up of water. Just as bread and water are essential for physical life, Jesus is essential for spiritual life.
Jesus is the bread of life
– we must come to Him to recieve His life giving nurishment!
Jesus is the water of life
– we must believe in Him to drink of His life sustaining refreshment!
