What we need

With the world troubled by the Coronavirus at the moment, I thought it’s important to remember who Jesus is and what we need.  Right now, I’m reading the book of John, and John contains seven “I AM” statements.

I AM the Bread of Life (John 6:35, 41, 48, 51); I AM the Light of the World (John 8:12); I AM the Door of the Sheep (John 10:7, 9); I AM the Good Shepherd (John 10:11,14); I AM the Resurrection and the Life (John 11:25); I AM the Way, the Truth and the Life (John 14:6); and I AM the True Vine (John 15:1, 5).

The world needs Jesus – not hand sanitiser, face masks or toilet paper.

I found this on Facebook, I don’t know who wrote it – but it sums up four of Jesus’ I AM statements.

I AM the Bread of Life

Eight centuries before Christ’s birth, the prophet Micah foretold that He would be born in Bethlehem.  The meaning of the name “Bethlehem” is the “House of Bread”.

I AM the living bread which came down from heaven,” Jesus said in the first of seven “I AM” statements, “If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever.” John 6:51

Have you ever been hungry, for something besides food?  When I was a child, I hungered for a hug, and words of approval.  When I grew up, I hungered for a better life.  I hungered for the King, even though I did not yet know Him.

The King promised whoever comes to Him, the Bread from Heaven, believing in Him will never go hungry.  He said His Father’s will is that everyone who looks to Him the Son, and believes in him shall have eternal life, and He will raise them up at the last day.  John 6:35-40

I hope you have enjoyed reading what I’ve learned about the King.  I’m but one beggar showing another beggar how to find bread.  If you hunger in your spirit, remember who was born in the House of Bread, and I pray you’ll seek Him out.
