I Samuel 10:1-11:15 / John 6:41-71 / Psalm 107:1-43 / Proverbs 15:1-3
"I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever."
In John chapter 6 Jesus makes this statement a number of times. He says repeatedly that He is the bread of life and the living water. He didn't say he was the air of life or the living sunlight. Those things we need everyday but we receive without conscious thought or choice. Eating and drinking are things we need to do and which involve a decision; "What am I going to eat and what am I going to drink, today?"
JESUS WANTS US TO CHOOSE HIM ON A DAILY BASIS. He is all about having a LIVING AND ACTIVE RELATIONSHIP with us. AS WE CHOOSE TO INVITE HIM INTO OUR EVERYDAY LIVES WE DISCOVER THAT HIS WAYS GIVE REAL LIFE, TRUTH AND DIRECTION. (He is the Way, Truth, and Life) He wants us to be, become, and to continue becoming people who are deliberately seeking Him, choosing Him, and enjoying the life that is found in Him alone. HE IS OUR DAILY BREAD!
