THE STORY OF JESUS: John 6:30-40
“Whoever comes to me will never go hungry.
Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” (John 6:35)
As a Jesus follower, is it true that I never go hungry or thirsty?
By describing Himself as bread, He is speaking figuratively.
So how, figuratively speaking, am I spared from hunger and thirst.
There have been times when I have felt spiritually satisfied.
But there have also been times when I felt empty, dissatisfied?
What happened, did the bread fail me, or did I fail to eat the bread?
Knowing myself, I have to say that the weakness is in me, not Jesus.
I don’t always stay with Jesus, and my dissatisfaction increases as I drift.
When I do return, it takes time to renew my spirit in Him.
For the fountain to satisfy my thirst, I need to keep drinking from it.
With Jesus, I experience strength, courage, hope, grace, purpose, etc.
When I drift from Jesus, I lose my sense of love, joy, peace, etc.
Jesus is right, the bread is real, the water fresh… when we take them!
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, my dissatisfaction reminds me that nothing else can satisfy me but You. Help me to make it my daily practice to taste and see that You are good!
