Today’s devotion is based on Jesus’ words as they are recorded in John 6:35. “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never be hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.”
We often think that we know what will satisfy us. In our quest to find peace and fulfillment on our own terms, we often chase after and consume things that end up leaving us empty and wanting. The depth of God’s love and commitment to us, however, is unfathomable. There is only one who can truly satisfy our deepest hunger. God provided what was needed. He sent Jesus, the bread of life. The offer is made for us to take and eat and drink of body and blood. In his body and blood, we find true peace and happiness now and forever.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Heavenly Father, creator and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen, we give you our thanks for the gift of your Son Jesus, the bread of life. In him, our deepest hunger is fulfilled. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
