The True Bread

Usually I don’t eat bread and butter with my dinner. But tonight I ate two pieces of bread. I was extra hungry. The bread tasted so good. It tasted as good as a fancy dessert. Since I accepted Jesus as my Savior, I feel that the Bible is like those two pieces of bread. God’s Word satisfies my spiritual hunger every day.
As I was growing up, my family went to church on Sundays. But that was all. I never had a Bible. No one encouraged me to read the Bible. Then twenty years ago, when I was fifty years old, my son, Stephen, bought me my first Bible. I was so excited! I started reading it every day. Since that time, I can’t get enough of it. I want to study the Bible, remember it and discuss it with other people. Most importantly, I want to obey it!
Food nourishes our bodies. In the same way, God’s Word feeds our souls. Without it, we will be spiritually hungry. The Bible is the true bread that gives us life through Jesus Christ.
