Reflection on John 6:41-51

Scripture
“I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live for ever. This bread is my flesh which I will give for the life of the world.”

Observation
Jesus declares that He is the Bread of Life that comes down from heaven.

The people murmur against Him because He says He came from heaven. He is Joseph’s little boy!

No one comes to Jesus unless the Father draws him. Everyone who believes in Jesus has eternal life. The manna in the desert fed people for a limited time, and then they died. Jesus is the bread who gives eternal life.

Application
Jesus is the food for eternal life. We feed on Him and He sustains us into eternity.

The only way into heaven is through Jesus. No other way will provides us with access to the Father.

Good works are not good enough to obliterate sin. Other religions offer their own ideas about justifying ourselves, but they don’t deal with the root problems of sin.

Only Jesus takes away our sin.

Only Jesus counteracts the law of sin and death.

Only Jesus can bring us to the Father.

Prayer
Lord Jesus, you are the true Bread of Heaven. Thank you for setting me free from sin through your death in the cross. Amen.
