The Bread of Life Discourse
After the disciples witnessed Jesus
walking on the water, they returned to shore. Meanwhile, the crowds who had been fed
searched for Jesus. When they found him they asked how he had gotten to
Capernaum. Rather than satisfying their curiosity, Jesus redirected their
attention to the spiritual nature of his mission. He told them that the only
reason they searched as they did was because of physical hunger. He cautioned
them about relying on food that is perishable. The bread they need is the bread
of the Father, the source of eternal life.
Prayer: I confuse my wants with my needs. Would that I believed that you
are all I need. I ask your grace to let go and trust in you.
