People's Bible Notes for John 6:35


Joh 6:35 Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life. They ask for this bread. He answers, it is here; I am that bread. The work of God is that you receive it by believing upon him whom he hath sent. He that cometh shall not hunger; he that believeth shall not thirst. It is thus shown that faith is the power that brings us to Christ. We come to him by believing.

    First read John 6:51. Pondering thought and question. I eat bread like it's going out of style. But I look at it as if I am eating with Jesus (Bread is symbolic of his body that was broken for us). If I were to fast (stop/reduce) eating bread, would/could my faith/soul diminish/parish or grow stronger?
