The True Bread

“I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and that believeth on me shall never thirst.”

John 6:35

Here in John’s gospel, we see how Jesus shows Himself as the Bread from Heaven, of which the manna was a type. In John 6:32, it was not Moses who gave that bread from Heaven, but My Father who now sends Me as His provision for your sinful souls. “I am from above.” He said. Every aspect of Christ’s character, every act and word all prove that He was from Heaven. This world could not produce such a unique Personality. His parents, His surroundings, or, in fact anything outside of Himself was utterly powerless to manufacture such bread as this. “I came down from Heaven.” John 6:38

“I am.” Christ does not give this bread, but He is this bread. “I am the Bread of Life” v.35 “This bread which the Lord hath given you eat,” was said of the manna, Exodus 16:15, and is absolutely true of Him whom is the gift of God. Surely the form in which this bread is served to a perishing world is very attractive. What could be more inviting to a weary hungry soul? He is altogether lovely, and hungry heart, He is always and everywhere precious. “My flesh is meat indeed” Hebrews 10:19-20

The purpose of this bread is to give “life unto the world.” The world of spiritual humanity has many things attractive and useful without Christ, but it has no life. The world needs the light and life of Christ before it can be pleasing unto God. The world is hungry at heart for the true Light and the true Bread of satisfaction, but in unbelief, it will not look beyond itself for these infinite blessings. Whatever men may think or say, God deals with this world as a blind and dead thing, so in His great mercy, He sent His Son as its Light and Life.  “He that cometh to Me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.”
