23 Mar John 6:35, 51; Matthew 5:6
35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.
51 I am the living bread that came down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread also which I will give for the life of the world is My flesh.”
6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.
By saying “I AM the bread of life” and telling people they would never hunger or thirst again by partaking in Him, Jesus was flipping upside down the people’s perceptions of what was most important. We tend to get so caught up in the temporary, the physical, the worldly, that we often totally miss the spiritual, the eternal. Jesus also said that “those who hunger and thirst for righteousness” are blessed and “shall be satisfied” (ESV). What do you spend most of your time focusing on, longing for? Or what do you find most satisfying? The things of this world or the things of God? Spend some time this week focusing on Jesus and see if “the things of earth grow strangely dim.” (Turn Your Eyes Upon Jesus)
