John 6:47-51 (NIVUK)
47 Very truly I tell you, the one who believes has eternal life. 48 I am the bread of life. 49 Your ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness, yet they died. 50 But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which anyone may eat and not die. 51 I am the living bread that came down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will live for ever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.’
Jesus, not manna, is God’s ultimate provision for his people. He will nourish and sustain us, if we ingest and savour him by taking him and his ways into our own selves and making them part of us.
Thank you for Jesus, your bread of life, our ‘spiritual’ food, given for us.
