YIELD TO JESUS // OCTOBER 8, 2021
"Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty."
Jesus stated that he was the bread of life. This statement alone speaks to his attributes and character. He is our sustainer, our sufficient means to life.
There are two key words used in this passage: COME & BELIEVE. It’s the Father's will that sinners be saved. But it’s our choice. The Father gave the Son and we are invited to come to him and believe in him. To believe is not merely intellectual. We need to yield to Jesus not culture, yield to Jesus not our emotions, yield to Jesus not the government. Our desire should be to seek after the true bread of life.
Today, examine your heart. If you have yielded to the world’s mindset in some area of your life, return to the God who saved you. Rest in the understanding that you have everything you need. Jesus is your bread of life, and you do not need to seek any other substance because Christ is enough. Only Jesus satisfies the deepest desires of your soul.
