The Bread of Life

But He answered and said, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.'" - Matthew 4:4 

Bread only satisfies for so long. Then we hunger again. When we live acccording to the Word of God, we find satisfaction and abundant life. The hunger ceases. We no longer feel empty inside, trying to find something to fill that gnawing void. Are you feeling satisfied today, or is it time to partake of the Bread of Life?

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God." - John 1:1-2 (Jesus is the Word. He was always obedient to His Father's will. His words were God's words.)

"I am the bread of life...I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of this world." - John 6:48, 51 (Jesus is the bread of life, and He gave Himself for the life of this world...forgiveness of our sins and reconciliation of humankind with God the Father. Through His blood and broken body, we find eternal life with God.)

Just a little something to chew on... How has the Bread of Life, the Word, satisfied you?
