Bread can be made from wheat, oats, barley or rice. We need bread for a healthy diet. It is full of vitamins that our bodies need. Bread fills us up so we won’t become hungry soon.
The Israelites wandered in the desert for many years. While they were in the desert, God fed them with special bread. This bread was called manna. Each morning the Israelites gathered just enough manna for that day. If they saved the manna for the next day, “worms got into it and it began to stink” (Exodus 16:20b). This showed the Israelites that God would take care of them every day.
God knows that we need spiritual bread, too. What is spiritual bread? Jesus said in John 6:35b, “I am the bread that gives life. The person that comes to me will never be hungry. The person that believes in me will never be thirsty.”
The spiritual bread that we need is Jesus! When we accept Him as our Savior, we will never be spiritually hungry again. I hope that you will accept Jesus, the Bread of Life, to be the ruler of your life.
