Jesus offered all of us a sure way to experience peace, contentment, and complete satisfaction. In John, He tells us: "I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty. . . . All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away" (6:35, 37).
If you want to be sure of your eternal salvation, then take and eat of God's beloved manna, Jesus Christ.
Jesus embraces us with an unconditional love; one that will never cease. Just when we think there is no hope, no understanding, and no way out of our predicament, our loving Lord speaks words of affirmation and encouragement to our hearts.
In times of extreme difficulty, it is important to trust Him and not to faint with weariness. Remember that whatever He does concerning our lives will end up being for our good and for His glory. Are you fit for the battle? Are you partaking of the true Bread of Life, the one who will sustain you through times of victory and disappointment?
If you are eating from the bowl of the world's expectations and dreams, then you will be soundly disappointed. You will probably experience defeat in your spiritual and emotional life. You can spend your lifetime trying to gain wealth and prominence, but no amount of money is sufficient to purchase the gift that God offers you through the life of His Son.
If you want to be sure of your eternal salvation, then take and eat of God's beloved manna, Jesus Christ. No one nor anything else can satisfy your needs. Only Jesus can fill you, and this is exactly what He promises those who listen and accept His Word and nourishment.
Prayer: Jesus, thank You for meeting my every need—for filling my spiritual hunger. You are the Bread of Life. Help me to daily feast on Your Truth, goodness, and grace. I pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
"Jesus said to them, 'Very truly I tell you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven'" (John 6:32).
