Jesus is the bread of life

“Jesus replied, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again. Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty” (John 6:35, NLT).

There’s nothing like the smell of baking bread to make you feel warm and fuzzy, calm and happy. The familiar fragrance raises endorphin levels and puts a smile on your face.

It makes sense Jesus called himself the Bread of Life. Besides the obvious—giving and sustaining life—he evokes the same feelings when we think of all he is and all he has done for us. Coming to Jesus is like walking in the door of your home and being greeted by that wonderful smell, knowing you are welcome, loved and cherished. It’s knowing you will be cared for and comforted no matter what. He is the bread that warms, fills and keeps us going—forever.

  1. I had an interesting thought. We think in terms of “Bread of LIfe” because if we just had bread and water that would be enough to sustain us. But as I put it in the context of your thought. . .how wonderful fresh bread smells when it’s just baked and how wonderful to imagine our Savior this way. . .I am very thankful that He chose not to be the “liver of life!”
