Bread of Life

“Jesus declared, ‘I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.’” John 6:35

 

Up until a couple years ago, I didn’t understand what Jesus meant when he said he is the bread of life. I thought how could Jesus satisfy my hungry enough I don’t have to eat food? That’s silly.

 

In October 2013, I went to training camp for the World Race. This was 10 days of sleeping in a tent, little food, preparation activities including packing up and walking around the campus for 30 minutes with all of our belongings on our backs, having half of our group “loose their belongings” and having to figure out how to share what the rest of us had for one night.

 

These 10 days were physically, emotionally, and spiritually exhausting. But even though we weren’t eating much I rarely felt hungry. And here is why… I was getting filled up spiritually with amazing worship, quiet time, prayer, people to pour into me and the Holy Spirit. This is when I first experienced what it means for Jesus to be the bread of life. He was filling me up and I didn’t need physical food to fill me! It was incredible!

 

I have since experienced that again. I did a fast only drinking water and juice for 24 hours. I had a list of things I wanted to seek the Lord on and I felt this was a great way to do it. Whenever I would start to feel hungry I would pray and Jesus would fill me up. Jesus was the center of my whole day. I was constantly talking with him and I felt he was holding my hand and walking me through the day. Jesus filled me up; I didn’t need or even think of needing food to fill my stomach.

 

Why don’t we make Jesus a part of our every day all the time? Why are we not in constant communication with Jesus? I know I find myself not talking to him all the time, everyday. We get distracted by the outside world. We need to keep our gaze and focus on Jesus. He is the only one that can fulfill us. Nothing else in this world can.

 

Focus on Jesus.
