The Bread of Life (John 6:30-40)Tim Douglass, July 7, 2019
Part of the Other series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
I had originally intended to start my new series this Sunday, but on reflection, I decided that I didn’t want to begin a new book series on communion Sunday. Instead we are going to look a bit at what Jesus offers to us in the Lord’s Supper. What was it that the Israelites needed when they got into the desert after leaving Egypt? Bread, of course! They had no real idea of how to survive in the desert, especially as a huge band of people who had just left slavery and hit the road. God provided them with the bread they needed to sustain life, which is what Jesus was offering the people when He was on earth.
|« 1 Timothy 1:5||None||1 Thessalonians - Introduction »|
30They said therefore unto him, What sign shewest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee? what dost thou work? 31Our fathers did eat manna in the desert; as it is written, He gave them bread from heaven to eat. 32Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven. 33For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world. 34Then said they unto him, Lord, evermore give us this bread. 35And 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. 36But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not. 37All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. 38For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. 39And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. 40And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day. (KJV)
