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.
There are some foods I crave. The smell of freshly baked bread always has a special place in my heart. When I lived in Ponape, Micronesia, Western style food was scarce. Thus, when I heard of a German baker who lived on the other side of town, I eagerly made the trek. I didn’t have directions but didn’t need them. I followed the unmistakable and delectable scent of freshly baked bread! I easily found the bakery and proceeded to wolf down an entire loaf of the warm bread and several pastries!
Do you seek God as you seek and crave your favorite food? We need to depend upon Jesus to supply all of our needs-spiritual, physical, and emotional. Jesus distills our needs to the absolute basics. We all need food to survive. But we need Jesus to live.
