The crowd said to Jesus: “What sign can you do, that we may see and believe in you? What can you do? Our ancestors ate manna in the desert, as it is written:
He gave them bread from heaven to eat.”
So Jesus said to them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, it was not Moses who gave the bread from heaven; my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”
So they said to Jesus, “Sir, give us this bread always.” Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me will never hunger, and whoever believes in me will never thirst.”
We have the chance every day to take the living bread. The Bread of Life that Jesus died to give us. If you believe you will never die. If you do not believe you will not have eternal life. How can you walk away from The Bread of Life?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for giving me the bread that daily gives me life. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen!
Into your hands, O Lord, I commend my spirit, Alleluia!
