Verse of the Day

“Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”
— John 6:35 —

CHALLENGE

Filling ourselves with stuff. I am guilty of this offense, just like many others have. I have also been a repeat offender, filling my life with stuff, the need for more…more food, more friends, more money, more shopping, more…more…more. This idea or issue with wanting and getting more is; it is never satisfying. We become satiated and the compulsion is to keep getting more to satisfy. It is a never ending cycle of emptiness. The things of this life are temporary.

“You do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away” — James 4:14

What Jesus offers us, is the true, “Bread of Life” that will fill, sustain and give eternal life. When we feast upon the “Bread of Life,” it satisfies all the desires of our soul. As Christmas draws near, let us examine our hearts and our desires? Do we crave more stuff with no substance, or do we crave more of Jesus? Yes, Jesus…The One who can fill us and sustain us with goodness and mercy all the days of our lives, earthly and eternal.

Prayer ~

Jesus, I pray for the life sustaining nutrition that can only be satisfied by immersing myself in you. Teach me your ways oh, Lord. I want to feast on your word and I want to grow in your ways. Thank you Jesus for your willingness to save me, to save us all. Please forgive me as I will stumble and fall, help to to rise after each mistake, seeking your forgiveness and the opportunity to continue serve you. In Jesus name, Amen.
