Coffee Time with Jesus

  • Jesus: The Bread of God
    For the bread of God
    is He who comes down from heaven
    and gives life to the world.
    John 6:33
    Jesus is the Bread of God. Just as bread gives us strength for our daily activities, so Jesus gives us mental and spiritual strength to live for Him. Just as bread is enjoyable to eat, so Jesus is our joy and satisfaction in life. Just as bread keeps us alive (without food we would die), so Jesus keeps us living. We eat the bread of Jesus when we read and study the Word of God. We eat the bread of Jesus when we think on Him and meditate on the Word of God (Joshua 1:8; Luke 2:19). We eat the bread of Jesus when we attend church and listen to the Word being preached. And of course, we could never give out the bread of Jesus to a hungry world unless we first eat it for ourselves and experience His goodness.
    Lord Jesus, You are the Bread of life. Just as I enjoy warm bread right from the oven, I look forward to fellowship with You more.
    Jesus is the Bread of God who comes down from Heaven. When we taste Him, we begin munching on the good things of God. “Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good” (Psalm 34:8). Jesus is satisfying Bread, healthful Bread, life-giving Bread, and resurrection Bread. “Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day” (John 6:54).
    Jesus, You have good bread. I could fellowship with You forever. Could I have more? Amen.

    Jesus is the Bread of God who gives life to the world.
