Jesus Is The Bread From Heaven
Thursday, May 7th, 2015
Just as people sustain life by eating food for their flesh, those who truly believe in the ministries carried out by Jesus are entitled to receive eternal life. This is why Jesus said, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger and he who believes in me shall never thirsts.” John 6:35 However, many people took these words from a carnal perspective instead of understanding them from a spiritual perspective. The Lord said, “do not murmur among yourselves. No one can come to me unless the Father Who sent Me draws him and I will raise him up at the last day. John 6:43-44. Dear friends, it is said that no one can come before Jesus unless the Father draws the person.
Then who are the ones the Father draws to Jesus? They are the ones who want to be cleansed of sins in their hearts and to receive salvation of the spirit, which could never perish instead of things for the flesh that will rot away. God draws these people to His Son and have them to know and believe in the fact that Jesus has become our Saviour. Jesus has taken our sins by receiving the baptism from John the Baptist, dying through cruxification and being resurrected from the dead. For us to believe in this Truth in our hearts is to eat the Bread of life and acquire the salvation granted by grace through faith.
God the Father knows people’s hearts well. It is said, “for men look at the outward appearance but the Lord looks at the heart.” 1 Sam 16:17. This is why God the Father only draws those who want to acquire everlasting life by receiving the remission of their sins by eating the bread of life by faith. In contrast, this means that God does not draw those who seek only the things that perish no matter how pressing their needs are. Thus, when we believe in Jesus, we must truly pursue the things of the Spirit by heart. In doing so, we will first be able to receive the remission of sin and acquire everlasting life and then subsequently God will meet all our needs in this world.
Friends, at NCCkl I hope we will believe in Jesus with such purpose of receiving the remission of sin, become God’s children and live eternally in the Kingdom of God. Only then, God will help us, draw us and give us desire to come to Jesus and listen to His Word to understand the true meaning of salvation.
