Jesus, The Bread Of Life

Corner (John  6:35) “And 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.” Jesus is known by many names in the book of John, but in the above verse as the “bread of life,” he is seen not only as God’s Son who came down from heaven as “manna,” but the sustainer of eternal life to all who receive him and who feed upon him and his word.  1) God’s Purpose for sending Jesus into the world,was to give man a permanent “bread” and not just a temporary meal as He did when he fed Israel in the wilderness. Jesus is our permanent savior and sustainer once we get saved. “and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.”2) God’s Plan, was to send down Jesus to give men “eternal life.” We who were once dead in our sins, to us did God send down Jesus to save, and then once saved to feed upon as spiritual bread. “I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for e…

Ho To Build A Strong Marriage

(Gen. 2:24) “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” God describes the union between a man and wife as “one flesh.” Meaning that they are supposed to be inseparable and working together as a team. Therefore, in life the only thing that can destroy a marriage is when one or both become selfish and disobedient to God. The following are some ways that will help build a strong marriage: 1) Both need to obey God’s delegated authority . Since God is the creator and designer of all things, He has the right to set the rules in the home, and so He did when He placed the man in charge and the woman under his authority. This is not to say that he is a better creation, or smarter, but rather it just means that both are to obey God’s will. 2) The husband must love like Christ. He must learn to practice self-less love, and to love her as Christ loves the church. How?  By honoring her above himself, and to look for ways to …

We Call Him Father

(Jn. 5:17-18) “But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.Therefore, the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.” In the day of Jesus, calling God “Father,” was a shocking statement, because that placed you in the direct family of God Himself. The concept of God having a Son was also foreign to the teaching of the “one God” doctrine of the Jew. However, it was not foreign to the prophesies of scripture concerning the coming of “Messiah,” or the “prince” that shall come (Dan. 9:25-26). 1) Jesus Called God “My Father .”  Only God’s true children can call Him Father. Of course, Jesus was and is the only begotten Son of God in the flesh, (His first born), but today anyone who calls upon Jesus for salvation can now call God Father. (Heb 2:10) “For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory...” (Rom. 8:15)”…

Go And Share The Gospel

(John 4:35) “Say not ye, There are yet four months, and then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white already to harvest.” These verses have been used for centuries by Preachers to challenge God’s people to win souls and labor in the world for Christ, but because of our human nature we can grow cold to this calling and forget to think about the eternal souls of the people around us. Then, all to soon comes a funeral or a sickness that causes us to be concerned. In the above verse Jesus challenged his disciples on how to stay focused on the souls of men, for he just witnessed to a woman standing at a well about her eternal soul, and because he did she believed on him and her witness caused an entire town to come out to find him. Therefore, Jesus commanded; 1)Lift up your eyes. In other words, stop being so distracted and place your focus onto what is really important. As Christians it’s very possible to be more focused on our…
