The Doorpost: Come to Jesus

I am the bread of life; whoever comes to Me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in Me shall never thirst.

John 6:35

Never hunger and never thirst. How can this be? 

A few verses later (verse 51) Jesus said, “I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats this bread, he will live forever. And the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.” 

Some of those who heard Him asked, How can He do that? Many of His disciples turned back from following Him. What was He saying?

In verse 63, Jesus explained, “It is the Spirit Who gives life. The flesh is no help at all. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life.” The physical food and drink we consume each day sustains our physical life. Jesus gave His life so that anyone who comes to Him and believes in Him can have eternal life.

Take some time to read John 6:36 and the verses following. Read similar ideas at the beginning of Isaiah 55. Jesus is the only Source of eternal life. He alone can satisfy our spiritual hunger and thirst. Come to Him.
