In John 6, after He fed the 5,000 with five loaves and two fish, Jesus repeatedly offers Himself as the spiritual food that gives eternal life and eternal satisfaction to all who eat.
John 6:27: “Do not work for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you, for on Him the Father, God, has set His seal.
John 6:32: Jesus then said to them, ‘Truly, truly, I say to you, it is not Moses who has given you the bread out of heaven, but it is My Father who gives you the true bread out of heaven.’
John 6:33: “For the bread of God is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world.
Our spiritual appetites have become jaded as a result of eating too much junk food.
Some Christians are feeding on junk food and it is spoiling their spiritual dinner. Now Jesus comes to us in the plain ordinary way of bread and is so easily overlooked and taken for granted. When people go on diets they tend to leave out the bread.
Similarly when our lives get hectic or even when our lives are not hectic, we may choose to leave the Word out of our diet.
There are multitudes of starving sheep that won’t reach out to our spiritual Sheperd for something to eat.
Consider this: Some sheep are becoming so skinny that their spiritual ribs are showing.
