And Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in Me shall never thirst.” John 6:35
Muhammad Ali once told college students, “Stay in college…. until you are through. If they can make penicillin out of moldy bread, they sure can make something out of you.”
Have you ever felt like moldy bread, down for the count? It can be depression, grief, adversity, or fatigue. Most of us know the feeling of being dispirited. But Christ can do something with you!
He didn’t come as a scholar in Athens, an emperor in Rome, or a wise man in Babylon. He came in poverty. His first bed was an animal’s feeding trough. That tells us something. No matter your background or circumstances, you are significant and loved by the King of kings who entered our world humbly.
But one thing Jesus isn’t—moldy bread. He is the Bread of Life! Those who come to Him will never suffer spiritual hunger. Those who trust Him will never thirst for grace. Because He lived in humility, He can lift you to eternity!
We need the true Christmas, “Bread of Life”; we need “Jesus a Saviour”…. Let us embrace the Gospel…. Let us believe and rejoice… [and] heartily welcome the “glad tidings.” Charles Bullock
