Today... 'the Bread Of Life'

'I am the Living Bread.'
'Eat of me and live', He said
'Manna from heaven on high
only Christ can fully satisfy.'

'Come to Me to believe
and everlasting life receive.'
'Hunger and thirst no more
and be satisfied for evermore.'

******

Lord, Your life you have given
and all who eat are forgiven.
Oh may the world taste and see
and never be hungry and thirsty.

For The Heavenly Living Bread
entered the realms of the dead.
Took our sins down to the grave
and rose again with power to save.

You are the Bread of Life, my Lord
I've tasted that the Lord is Good.
Manna come from heaven on high
and nothing but You can satisfy.

John 6: 35
Then Jesus declared, 'I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.

John 6: 47-49
I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life. I am the bread of life. Your forefathers ate the manna in the desert, yet they died.

John 6: 50-51
But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which a man may eat and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.'


All quotations ©NIV

The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting an aspect
of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as
'The Bread of Life'
