The Bread of Life - January 10, 2020

Jesus said, “I am the bread of life.  Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again” (John 6:35).

You know, the grain-to-bread process is a demanding one.  Bread is the end result of planting, harvesting, and heating.  Jesus endured an identical process.  He was born into this world.  And then He was cut down, bruised, and beaten on the threshing floor of Calvary.  He passed through the fire of God’s wrath, for our sake.  Jesus “suffered because of others’ sins … He went through it all— was put to death and then made alive— to bring us to God” (1 Peter 3:18 MSG).

Bread of Life?  Jesus lived up to the title.  But you know, an unopened loaf does a person no good. Have you received the bread?  Have you received God’s forgiveness?
