 I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE

(Scripture Reflection John 6:35)
 
“I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.Indeed since bread is one of the essentials of life, it has entered our language in a big way. For instance, the phrase earning our daily bread is used to indicate the occupation that provides us money to buy food to live.

In this passage Jesus refers to himself as “the bread of life”.Why should Jesus give himself to us as consumable bread when we can eat all the food that  the world offers for our daily toil?Why does God appear in the form of everyday food when we would much rather perceive him as ‘a rock of refuge’ a strong fortress to save. It is because Jesus wants to strengthen and nourish our spirit, to emphasise a spiritual truth. He wants to give us wisdom from above,which will help us live a happy and meaningful life.

When we go to Jesus we get divine guidance on how to live life to the fullest both physically and spiritualy. That is why Jesus invites us to come to him and “never be hungry” however it is our responsibility to accept his call and be filled. We can seek him through his own word and through his precious body and blood. In this way Jesus will truly become the bread of our life.
