"Then Jesus declared, 'I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.'"
Outside my window a cardinal scratches in the snow, hoping to find a seed dropped by the birds dining at the feeder above. Just above him on a little table lies a plate of sunflower seeds, his favorite treat. He could easily fly up onto that table and have a feast instead of scrounging for a stray seed on the ground. But he doesn’t seem interested in looking up.
The cardinal reminds me of myself at times. I’ll spend hours reading the latest Christian novel, hoping to find a bit of wisdom about God or an insight into the Bible, when instead I could be feasting on the very Word of God sitting on the shelf beside me. When Jesus said, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty,” He wasn’t merely talking about food and water. He was speaking of spiritual nourishment – which can come only from Him. Only He can answer the questions buried inside every human heart. Only He can supply our deepest needs. Look up! He has prepared a feast for your soul!
FEAST ON GOD'S WORD TODAY AND DON'T SETTLE FOR LESS.
