TOPIC: I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE
TEXT: John 6.51 “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 the world….”
The bread of life came down from heaven to give Himself for the world. When most believers read this passage they only visualise it as a spiritual eating and not physical. John 6:54, “the one who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day”. The word “eats” in greek is “trogon” which means to “chew” or “masticating”, a crunching sound. The bread which was generally eaten by the Jews was hard and made a crunchy sound when eaten.
This beloved, speaks of the communion. No wonder in the account of Paul about the communion, he said; “for this cause many of you are sickly, weak and die” (1 Corinthians 11:30). This happens when believers don’t really discern the Bread of Life and when it is taken infrequently.
So beloved, how often do you remember the Lord Jesus? He said, as often as you eat my flesh and drink my blood, you remember me.
There is healing, strength and life in taking the communion. You wonder why the apostles had so much speed, power and impact with the gospel. They always partook of the communion from house to
house. Jesus is calling on you to remember Him often and in turn, be filled with life, strength and health.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank You for Your body that was broken for me, that mine will never become weak or broken. I am full of life, in Jesus Name.
