Weekly Reflection

"I am the living bread which has come down from heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is my flesh, for the life of the world."

John 6:41-51

For the past few weeks, we saw Jesus being hailed a miracle worker and a teacher. The crowds were clamoring for him to become king. This week, the crowds were dissatisfied with Jesus’ discourse on the Bread of Life and called him a lunatic.

The food that the crowds was looking for was physical bread but Jesus instead offered himself as the Bread of Life which will give them eternal life. The crowds were more interested in satisfying their physical hunger, which is temporary, than their spiritual hunger, which is eternal.

We put our trust in the temporary and material world when only Jesus can truly satisfy us. Have you received Jesus today?
