Feeding on the Bread of Life

above_only

John 6:47-50, 56-57 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life. I am that bread of life. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. *He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me.

The same way the food you eat reflects on your health and strength, your faith in Christ similarly reflects on your health and strength in life. Every time you exercise your faith in
Christ, you feed on the Bread of Life because Jesus is the Bread of Life. He is our spiritual food that nourishes and builds up every area of our lives. Everything that builds your

faith in Christ serves to ensure that you continue to experience abundant life. Anytime you opt to put your faith and trust in anything else, you inevitably deprive yourself of the abundant life that God has made available for you in Christ.
In the last verse of our text above, Jesus said that as the Father sent Him and as He lives by the Father, so also whoever eats of Him will live by Him. He wants us to exercise so much faith in Him that He, indeed, becomes the source of our life and strength. He wants us to
continue believing in Him so that we can continue to experience His,strength and abundant life in every area of our lives. Remain intentional about allowing the word of Christ to dwell in you
richly, as you continually direct others to Christ. Our faith in Christ is built up as we come to know Him more. This is why one of Apostle Paul’s greatest prayers was to know Christ, Phil.3:10. The fullness of God dwells in Christ and we experience completeness in every area
of our lives as we continue to put our faith in Him, Col.2:9-10.

Prayer Focus

Thank God for the Life He sent Jesus to make available for you. Look unto Jesus and receive His abundant life into every area of your life where you need Him the most.
