I baked two loves of bread today. Jesus is the bread of life to me. In the old covenant bread, (manna), had to be collected daily, in an instructed religious fashion.
In the new covenant Jesus is the living bread. I am the bread of life. Many of his disciples decided to walk with him no more. They left Jesus. I have often wondered where they went, who did they follow instead?
Jeremiah says my people have committed two sins. Forsaking the fountain of life – Jesus, and building for themselves a trough to drink from, a trough which will not satisfy, like the fountain.
Did thoes many disciples who could not eat Jesus flesh, and drink his blood, leave him and go away and drink from another trough, of their own making?
Dear brother’s and sisters, come away from your homemade troughs and drink again at Jesus the fountain of life. Come afresh, or for the first time, and drink. The past is gone, the new has come. Eat of his flesh as your bread, and drink of his blood. Hallelujah!
How much more the invitation to eat and drink the flesh and blood of the only begotten son of God! This is surely the mystery of Christ! The Holy Spirit will always lead you back to Jesus. Every other spirit will lead you to another trough, to which you will become a slave. Today my bread was amazing. A few days ago my bread was a disaster! The bread of his flesh, is always amazing. Enjoy.
Jesus enable you to drink and eat at his table, and help you to leave your troughs behind.
