“I am the bread of life. The one who comes to me will never go hungry, and the one who believes in me will never be thirsty.” (John 6:35 NET)
We see miracles every day; the birth of a new born baby…the healing of a cancer patient…the sunrise…the germination of a dead seed into a fruit–producing plant. These are things we sometimes assume will happen, or can happen, yet are miracles just the same. We come to expect the unexpected. Yet we tend to forget it is God in the middle of it all. We too want more things from Jesus more than we want more of Jesus.
We are consumed with the things we need in this world but we should be consumed with the One who provides it all.
Jesus said “This is the bread that came down from heaven; it is not like the bread your ancestors ate, but then later died. The one who eats this bread will live forever.” (John 6:58 NET)
We must be consumed with the Bread of Life…our Savior Jesus Christ! We who claim to follow the Lord must be obsessed with Him, inspired by Him, devoted to Him, and living for Him! He must be our focus and our passion.
What do we hunger and thirst for? In this all-consuming world, are we the followers of Jesus Christ known by our hunger and thirst for Him and His ways?
More…more…more…of Jesus! Let us want more of Him and be more like Him!
