Come to Jesus, the Bread of Life
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. (John 6:35 ESV)
I have a daily relationship with food. In fact, I typically eat multiple times every day.
I eat and feel satisfied, but in a matter of hours I begin to feel hungry again. That’s how my relationship with Jesus is.
Some people mistakenly think that “coming to Jesus” is just describing the moment that a person gets saved, as if that one moment is supposed to sustain you for the east of your life.
Of course, receiving Jesus as your Savior is the greatest decision you will make, but your relationship with Jesus is not merely built on that one decision. Coming to Jesus is something we do all the time, for our entire lives!
If someone prepared a feast just for you, a banquet table filled with every possible delicacy you can imagine, and you ate until you couldn’t take another bite, it would still only temporarily sustain you. Bread (food) is intended to be a part of your daily life, not a one-time event.
Jesus is the bread of life. He is able to sustain you and strengthen you…every day!
I know a lot of people who came (past tense) to Jesus. I also know a lot of people who come (present, continuous) to Jesus. The strongest believers are those who consistently and continually come to Jesus.
It’s so easy to come to Jesus. Take some time to Worship Him, spend some time in His Word, give some time to Prayer.
Those who come to Jesus leave filled.
So come every day, as many times as you need!
Athletes will tell you that, when you are in training and in competition, your boys demands more fuel. The same is true in your spiritual life. When you are being pressed, when you are engaging in warfare, when you are in particularly difficult seasons of life, your spirit needs more fuel.
Does your spirit feel strong and sustained right now? Really. Right now, how do you feel in your spirit? Maybe you just need to come and eat from the Bread of Life.
Thank You for giving me unlimited access to the Bread of Life – Your Son, Jesus. Today I come to be sustained, strengthened, and filled.
