Daily Bible Reading “I Am the Bread of Life” (John 6:35)

I Am the Bread of Life

Today’s Daily Bible Reading is from John 6:35, 6:48-51.

“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” (John 6:35).

In this Scripture, Jesus says that He is the bread of life. When we think of bread we think of food or nourishment. We may think about the manna that was sent to the children of Israel in the desert to fulfill their physical needs in the book of Exodus.

Jesus says those who come to Him will never hunger. He’s not speaking in the physical sense, but in a spiritual sense. Have you ever felt hungry in your soul? Have you ever felt empty? Have you ever felt that you needed to be filled up? Jesus is the one who can satisfy that longing in our spirits to be filled.

When we take communion we use bread or crackers, usually unleavened bread, to represent the body of Christ. In John 6:51, Jesus says, “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.”

In this Scripture Jesus tells us that He is speaking of His body when He says, “I am the bread of life.” He gives us a promise saying those who eat of this bread will live forever. He refers to His death on the cross when He says that the bread is His flesh, which He will give for the life of the world.

 

Daily Bible Reading:

John 6:35, 6:48-51

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.

 

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.

 

Things to think about:

  • How does the bread represent the body of Christ?
  • How can we partake of this living bread?
  • What are the results of partaking of the living bread?

 

Prayer of the Day:

Dear Heavenly Father,

We thank You for this Scripture where we learn that the bread represents the body of Christ. Thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus, into this world to sacrifice His body for our sins. Help us to accept this sacrifice as payment for our sins. Help us to tell others about the beautiful sacrifice that Jesus made for us all. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
