John 6:35 - Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and He who believes in me will never be thirsty.”
As Jesus was ministering to the people He knew their hearts and what they were thinking. He knew that they had all been following Him for awhile. They were with Him when He fed 5000 with the five loaves and two small fish (John 6:1-14). Now they were with Him again, not because they knew He was the Son of God, but because they wanted another free meal. Jesus would give them something, but not in the way they expected.
“I am the bread of life,” Jesus said, “He who comes to me will never go hungry, and He who believes in me will never be thirsty.” We are all created with a hunger and thirst for something greater than ourselves. This is not in the natural, but in the Spiritual. When God created man in the beginning it was to be in fellowship with Him. After man sinned this fellowship was lost and there became a void in man’s life that could only be filled with God.
We can see this today too, because that void is still there. If you look around you will find all sorts of different ways that people are trying to fill that void. Some spend their whole life searching, but the Truth is right in front of us. Nothing else will satisfy of quench that thirst. Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Through Him we can come back into that relationship with the Father that our spirit has been hungering for since we were born. Jesus fills that void in our heart and brings us back to God. He is the bread of life. Come to Him and you will never go hungry . Believe in Him and your thirst will be quenched.
