Jesus – The Bread of Life

John 4:35, ‘ I am the bread of life. He who comes to me shall never hunger, and he who believes in me shall never thirst.’

This verse appears to be relatively simple and straightforward. In the natural, bread and water are universal for eating and drinking.  The Bible provides a deeper and more significant understanding where bread and water may seem symbolic but are used as covenants between God and man. Sharing bread and water with others draws people together, both create an environment of comfort and hospitality.
Verse, 1 Corinthians 11, the Institution of the Lord’s Supper, the night Jesus was betrayed,  took bread and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, ‘Take, eat, this is My body which is broken for you, do this in remembrance of Me.’ Jesus was about to give up His life on the cross for the sins of mankind.
Verse, John 4, Jesus asked a Samaria women for a drink of water from the well she was drawing from. Then Jesus said to her ‘ Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again, but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.’
Natural bread and water provide nutrition to the body. Spiritual bread and water feeds the spirit.
How do we partake of the living bread and water, we do so by exercising our faith and trust, trying our best to living a righteous life.
