³³For the bread of God is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world.” ³⁴Then they said to Him, “Lord, always give us this bread.” ³⁵Jesus said to them, “I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE; he who comes to Me will not hunger, and he who believes in Me will never thirst.
Like you are used to eat, you have to take God’s word to you.
If you don’t eat you will go hungry,
likewise you will go hungry spiritually if you don’t take God’s word to you.
Not eating will cause you to die.
Not taking God’s word to you, will let you spiritually die.
⁴¹Therefore the Jews were grumbling about Him, because He said, “I AM THE BREAD that came down out of heaven.”
Those who oppose God are not happy with the fact that people take food to them that makes them spiritually healthy and strong.
⁴⁸I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE. ⁴⁹Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died.
Even if you are eating regularly, you will still eventually die.
But when we take the food from His word, it is much different.
⁵⁰This is the bread which comes down out of heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die. ⁵¹I AM THE LIVING BREAD that came down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread also which I will give for the life of the world is My flesh.”
⁵⁸This is the bread which came down out of heaven; not as the fathers ate and died; he who eats this bread will live forever.”
When we keep feeding ourselves with the LIVING BREAD we will live forever.
Note that Jesus didn’t say that He was the cake or pie, to be used at special occasions, but he used the word bread, for daily use, and daily maintenance of your body.
So we too must take His word to us daily to live a healthy spiritual life.
