I am the bread of life
Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. – John 6:35
So easily we focus on the things of this world, thinking that if we could satisfy our longings, then we would be content: “If only I had more money in my retirement account, then I’d be happy.” “If only I had a new/different job, then I’d be happy.” “If only I could get that new car/house/dress/pair of shoes, then I’d be satisfied.”
It never works. For what we really need is food not for this world, but food for our souls. We need to have an answer for our guilt. We need to know that our sins are forgiven, that we’re at peace with God. We need to know where we’re going when we leave this world.
And in Jesus we get all of those things. Jesus paid for our sins, Jesus washed our guilt away. Jesus opened the gates of heaven for us, Jesus established peace between us and God.
So if you never want to be hungry or thirsty again, then feast! Feast on the Word of God, feast on the good-news message of Jesus, your Savior. Eat, drink and be satisfied, perfectly satisfied–in Jesus.
