OUR DAILY BREAD


800-thanksgiving2

Our daily bread means more than a nice slice of whole wheat bread covered in strawberry jam, in the Bible it is often used to illustrate other things and today we are going to look at a few of these things:

a/Christ is the bread of life.John 6:33-35 King James Version (KJV) 33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.34 Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread.35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst.  In these verses we have two types of bread mentioned, physical and spiritual. Jesus is our spiritual bread of life.

b/Bread represents the broken body of Christ. Matt.26:26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. 1 Cor.11:23 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, that the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread:24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.

c/[ partaking of bread ] Communion or fellowship of Saints.  Acts 2:46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,  1Cor.10:17 For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.

d/[ want of bread ] Extreme poverty. Proverbs 12:He that is despised, and hath a servant, is better than he that honoureth himself, and lacketh bread. Isaiah 3:In that day shall he swear, saying, I will not be an healer; for in my house is neither bread nor clothing: make me not a ruler of the people. Today we see extreme poverty and the need for both physical and spiritual bread, spiritual bread is needed to save the souls and spirits of mankind!

e/ [ fulness of bread ] Abundant life. Ezek.16:49 Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.  John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.  Jesus is the only bread that can satisfy our spiritual hunger!
