I AM — The Bread of Life!

Day 2241: View your life from God’s perspective – His foresight is 20/20!

Scripture: Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to Me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in Me shall never thirst.” John 6:35

Thoughts/questions:  Jesus had just fed 5,000 people with minimal bread and fish the day before He declared this about Himself. After He fed the 5,000, He knew the number of followers would increase greatly as many people’s #1 concern was their physical needs, not their spiritual needs. Jesus set about to change that!

However, most of the crowd couldn’t comprehend the spiritual analogy Jesus was making. They were entrenched in the physical and the concept of bread being important to their physical life was very real to them. Having a spiritual focus was difficult for them, and that is pretty much true of many of us today.

How are you doing re-orienting your life towards the spiritual and away from the physical? Do the circumstances of your day get responded to in regards to those circumstances physical impact or their potential spiritual impact?

God’s priority is the spiritual far above the physical (consider Jesus). May we better understand our lives (the bread) from God’s eternal perspective, not merely from our own limited earthly perspective!

Suggested prayer: Lord Jesus, help me to consider important the things You consider important . . .
