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.
There is a bread that satisfies, a bread that brings true fulfillment in life. Many times we sacrifice everlasting things for temporal things, things that give temporal satisfaction and in a long run leave us depressed. Because of lack of knowledge, we pursue closely after wealth, fame, and other pleasures of the world forgetting there is only one thing that satisfies. The bread of life!
We all want to be satisfied, we desire a happy and peaceful life. However no matter the toiling, many of us don’t end up happy… we just keep on striving hoping we will someday be satisfied. We think to ourselves maybe if I get a masters degree, I will get a better job and I will atlas be happy. We have failed to understand that the needs of man is insatiable. No matter how much a man acquires, he still has no rest. Solomon, the richest man ever lived said ” Everything is meaningless” (Ecclesiastes 1:2).
What then is meaningful? Jesus told the crowed, ““Very truly I tell you, you are looking for me, not because you saw the signs I performed but because you ate the loaves and had your fill. 27 Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him God the Father has placed his seal of approval”.
Jesus is the bread of life, if we desire a fulfilled life here on earth and a rest in eternity we must desire Jesus above all, for he is the bread we have been searching for.
Imagine a scenario were there are many men all lined up, and in front of them a golden Lamborghini is placed and the owner says “the first man to touch the car owns the car”. You can imagine how fast they will run to touch the car. Understanding the mystery in Jesus as the bread of life should make you run faster to grab him!
Jesus is the only answer to a fulfilled life
