《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “Then Jesus declared, ‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.’” (Joh 6”35)
Meditation one: Why is “the bread of life” that Jesus granted different from our daily food? For the bread He granted will “never go hungry ” and “never be thirsty”. The worldly people have tried all kinds of ways in order to fill people’s emptiness, but cannot be satisfied, eat and then hungry, drink and then thirsty again. Only Jesus can fulfill people’s souls, for He is the bread of life.
Meditation two: What is the purpose of your eating and drinking? Is it for survival, or for life? Sadly, there are many people who just exist and have no life. It is merely to satisfy the needs of flesh but no meaningful purpose of life. Only Jesus Christ is the fulfilment of life. Jesus has promised that “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10b). You simply come and trust Him, He is able to save you to the uttermost.
Prayer: Abba heavenly Father, thank You for the bread of life that you granted to me in Christ. Because of Your salvation, I can become partaker of the eternal life You promised – no longer hungry, thirsty, and will never die. Help me Lord, let me have a longing soul for Your words as a deer pants for streams of water, and live out Your abundant life. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
