Share a high and a low from the past week.
Answer this question again: “I am… (noun)”— something that describes you, or how you are feeling right now, other than your name!
John 6:27-35 (NRSV)
27 Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For it is on him that God the Father has set his seal.” 28 Then they said to him, “What must we do to perform the works of God?” 29 Jesus answered them, “This is the work of God, that you believe in him whom he has sent.” 30 So they said to him, “What sign are you going to give us then, so that we may see it and believe you? What work are you performing? 31 Our ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’” 32 Then Jesus said to them, “Very truly, I tell you, it was not Moses who gave you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of God is that which comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”34 They said to him, “Sir, give us this bread always.”
35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.
What does it mean that Jesus says, “I am the Bread of Life”? How can Jesus be this source of satisfaction for us?
How does experiencing Jesus as “the Bread of Life” help us to know God more fully?
Dear God, thank you for bringing us all here today to learn more about you through your son Jesus. Help us to remember that even when we feel like we don’t do enough to honor you, you accept us just as we are because you made us and love us. Let us be constant reminders to each other that we are enough. In your name we pray. Amen.
May the Bread of Life give you what you need today and always.
