Bread from Heaven
Readings: Exodus 16:2-15, Ephesians 4:1-16, John 6:22-35
I read this quote the other day, “The Bible is meant to be BREAD for daily use, not CAKE for special occasions.” The Exodus reading tells of the bread from heaven the Lord sent to the Israelites after they were delivered from Egypt. In John 6, Jesus talks to the people about that bread and the ‘feeding of the 5,000’ bread, and claims, “For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world…I am the bread of life.” When we are filled up with that Good Bread, then we are equipped to work with Jesus and support His family on earth, as well as share the Bread with unbelievers. We can fill up on Bread and it becomes our full meal and best dessert, too. And it doesn’t lead to an abundant waist line - it leads to abundant life!
May God grant bundant life to us all,
