Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. 34 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. 35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. 36 But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not. 37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. 38 For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. 39 And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. 40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day. 41 The Jews then murmured at him, because he said, I am the bread which came down from heaven. 42 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven? 43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves. 44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day. 45 It is written in the prophets, And they shall be all taught of God. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me. 46 Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father. 47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.48 I am that bread of life. 49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. 50 This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. 51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat? 53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you. 54 Whoso eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day. 55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed. 56 He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him. 57 As the living Father hath sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eateth me, even he shall live by me. 58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever. John 6:32-58
We urge you to read a couple of times the discourse of Jesus about the true bread of life as per recorded above by Apostle John. There were few staggering claims of Jesus about Himself and His relationship with His Father. He claimed to be and truly is, the Bread who incarnated in the form of a man, Word became flesh and dwells among us. Originated from heaven, came out from the mouth of God as the Word of the Almighty. He is no ordinary baked bread that men can live by; Christ is the bread from the mouth of God to our mouth to digest and be part of our being. Here are the following verse to elucidate Christ’s claim about Himself.
1. The true bread from heaven. Verse 32
2. The bread of God is He who came down from heaven. Verse 33
3. I am the bread of life. Verse 35
4. I am the living bread which came down heaven. Verse 51
If you believe that He is the bread of your life, you shall have everlasting life. As you eat the Bread, you shall never see death. Your loved ones, nurses and the doctors may see you die and pronounce you dead but not you who can see death. Eternal life as promised by our Lord is a continuous and never ending life in Christ. He who believes on Him shall never die.
His flesh is our meat to eat like a bread. How can this possibly happen? Can we eat Christ’s flesh? Remember, before He became flesh, He was and is the Word. While we feast on His spoken words and only His words we do partake the bread from heaven. He is also the mouthpiece of His Father. Every word that comes out from the mouth of God points to His Son, Jesus Christ.
Are you hungry after the true bread of life? His words are available now for you. Accept who He is for He loves you more than anybody else. He is the Bread from heaven.
