Good morning, Family:
This is the week that most of our nation is unified in giving Thanks for the blessings in our lives. I am most Thankful for my eternal life. I cant tell Jesus, “Thank You” enough.
Jesus taught us how to pray, through the Word of God. One of the things we are to pray for is Our Daily Bread. God is our portion and our supply. Jesus is called, “Bread of Heaven” because through Him we have eternal access to the true and living God. Jesus is our Manna from heaven. We should “feed” on Him daily.
The Message (MSG)
The Bread of Life
27 “Don’t waste your energy striving for perishable food like that. Work for the food that sticks with you, food that nourishes your lasting life, food the Son of Man provides. He and what he does are guaranteed by God the Father to last.”
28 To that they said, “Well, what do we do then to get in on God’s works?”
29 Jesus said, “Throw your lot in with the One that God has sent. That kind of a commitment gets you in on God’s works.”
30-31 They waffled: “Why don’t you give us a clue about who you are, just a hint of what’s going on? When we see what’s up, we’ll commit ourselves. Show us what you can do. Moses fed our ancestors with bread in the desert. It says so in the Scriptures: ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’”
32-33 Jesus responded, “The real significance of that Scripture is not that Moses gave you bread from heaven but that my Father is right now offering you bread from heaven, the realbread. The Bread of God came down out of heaven and is giving life to the world.”
34 They jumped at that: “Master, give us this bread, now and forever!”
Be blessed, Family. Give Thanks today for our Savior and Redeemer, the Bread of Life, Jesus Christ.
