Fresh Bread

“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.’” John 6:35

The aroma of warm bread just out of the oven is enticing. People love the smell and look forward to savoring freshly-baked breads. To experience its full flavor, bread should be eaten soon after it is baked. Stale bread, bread that has sat for a few days, is unappealing and usually tossed in the trash. That’s why bakeries and restaurants bake their breads throughout the day – everyday.

To keep our faith fresh and appealing to others, we must constantly feast on the words of Jesus Christ, the bread of life. That’s not always easy to do. Our lives are busier than ever. Finding a few minutes alone with our Lord is difficult, but so rewarding. Tasting and savoring a bit of Scripture every day nourishes us spiritually.

One thing I have noticed about devotionals is that each day’s reading focuses on just a few verses, and a short narrative. The Bible is so alive and relevant that we can read just one or two verses and be spiritually nourished for the day. It’s amazing to me how these few verses each day speak to my spirit.

We don’t eat just once or twice a week. Instead, we enjoy regular meals to maintain our strength. Our spiritual health depends on receiving regular nourishment too.

 Rather, he delights in the teachings of the Lord and reflects on his teachings day and night.” Psalm 1:2 (GW)

 

Blessings on your day.

  1. I could not miss sharing this verse that came to mind after reading your blog this morning Julie, since our Lord Jesus is our Bread of Life.
    “Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!” (‭Psalm‬ ‭34‬:‭8‬ ESV)

  2. One reason I like reading the thoughts of other Christian’s through their blogs is that I not only get a taste of the Word in small bites but I also get a personal perspective on that verse. Some perspectives are half baked, while others are a delicacy. Your perspective today is one tasty morsel.
