“The True Bread of God,” Jesus had told the Jews, “Is the One Who comes down from Heaven and gives life to the world.”
“Sir,” they responded, “give us that bread every day!”“I AM the Bread of Life!”, Jesus responded. “Whoever comes to Me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in Me will never be thirsty. But you haven’t believed in Me, even though you have seen me. However, those the Father has given Me will come to Me, and I will never reject them.” John 6:34-37 NLT
Jesus is everything that we need! He is the Bread of Life, and He is the Living Water. Those who come to Him and believe on Him find that they need nothing more– their hunger is forever satisfied, and they find rivers of Living Water springing up eternally within them.
But, as Jesus pointed out, many do not believe– even of those who saw Him walking among them two thousand years ago. For one reason or another, they could not or would not believe that Jesus was the I AM, the only One sent by the Father, the only Way fallen man could ever be reconciled to God.
However, there are some who do believe, who do come to Jesus. These are the ones, He said, that His Father has given to Him. We have His promise that, when we come to Him, He will never reject us. When we come to Him, we find that He is everything we need; He satisfies our hunger, quenches our thirst, and will keep us safe forever!
