09/30 John 6:48-51
Yes, I am the bread of life! 49 Your ancestors ate manna in the wilderness, but they all died. 50 However, the bread from heaven gives eternal life to everyone who eats it. 51 I am the living bread that came down out of heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live forever; this bread is my flesh, offered so the world may live.”
Jesus gives us the strength we need to face the unknown and to overcome the difficulty sin brings in our life. We need power to face each day and Jesus gives us that power.
09/30 John 6:48-51
09/29 John 6:45-47
As it is written in the Scriptures, ‘They will all be taught by God.’ Everyone who hears and learns from the Father comes to me. 46 (Not that anyone has ever seen the Father; only I, who was sent from God, have seen him.) 47 “I assure you, anyone who believes in me already has eternal life.
Anyone who believes in Jesus has eternal life. You and I are included in that promise. Jesus is alive and He is seeking and saving the lost. If you have asked Christ to save you rejoice for you can know with surety that He has indeed saved you. Jesus loves you.
09/28 John 6:41-44
Then the people began to murmur in disagreement because he had said, “I am the bread from heaven.” 42 They said, “This is Jesus, the son of Joseph. We know his father and mother. How can he say, ‘I came down from heaven’?” 43 But Jesus replied, “Don’t complain about what I said. 44 For people can’t come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them to me, and at the last day I will raise them from the dead.
Who do you say Jesus is? If you have bent the knee to Him and asked Him to give you real life, life like the Father’s then you have been forgiven and Jesus is the leader of your life. Make it so today. Jesus is Lord.
09/27 John 6:39-40
And this is the will of God, that I should not lose even one of all those he has given me, but that I should raise them to eternal life at the last day. 40 For it is my Father’s will that all who see his Son and believe in him should have eternal life — that I should raise them at the last day.”
We want to do the will of God-share Jesus with someone. It is God’s will that no one be left behind, that all be saved. As you seek to do His WILL remember that Jesus said the Father wanted everyone to be saved and that He was going to do this work through you and me.
09/26 John 6:36
But you haven’t believed in me even though you have seen me. 37 However, those the Father has given me will come to me, and I will never reject them. 38 For I have come down from heaven to do the will of God who sent me, not to do what I want.
We have developed a societal attitude that if you think it and say it, it is done. Wrong. A Christ like life is a life that is changed. We are saved by grace and we live by the direction of the Holy Spirit who lives in us. Our call is to do what He says and to spend our life seeking to do His will not ours. Let the Lord have control of you. Give your cares and worries to Him.
09/25 John 6:34-35
“Sir,” they said, “give us that bread every day of our lives.” 35 Jesus replied, “I am the bread of life. No one who comes to me will ever be hungry again. Those who believe in me will never thirst.
Do you believe in Jesus? If you do you have 100% access to the Lord. You belong to Him. He has your welfare at the center of His heart. Jesus loves you.
09/24 John 6:30-33
They replied, “You must show us a miraculous sign if you want us to believe in you. What will you do for us? 31 After all, our ancestors ate manna while they journeyed through the wilderness! As the Scriptures say, ‘Moses gave them bread from heaven to eat.’ ” 32 Jesus said, “I assure you, Moses didn’t give them bread from heaven. My Father did. And now he offers you the true bread from heaven. 33 The true bread of God is the one who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”
We want: right now, all the time, what we don’t have, and what we shouldn’t have. The Lord knows our need. He will meet our need. We need to learn to trust the Lord and to commit our way to the Lord. Follow Jesus and He will deal with your want.
09/23 John 6:28-29
They replied, “What does God want us to do?” 29 Jesus told them, “This is what God wants you to do: Believe in the one he has sent.”
Step one in following the Lord’s plan for your life is for you to believe in Jesus. Get this right or nothing else will work. Make sure that you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Surrender you heart to Jesus and believe in Him.
09/22 John 6:25
When they arrived and found him, they asked, “Teacher, how did you get here?” 26 Jesus replied, “The truth is, you want to be with me because I fed you, not because you saw the miraculous sign. 27 But you shouldn’t be so concerned about perishable things like food. Spend your energy seeking the eternal life that I, the Son of Man, can give you. For God the Father has sent me for that very purpose.”
The Father sent Jesus to us. Jesus is with us and He is seeking to guide us. What are you facing today? What ever it is Jesus can help you deal with your challenges. Seek the Lord now while He may be found.
09/21 John 6:22-24
The next morning, back across the lake, crowds began gathering on the shore, waiting to see Jesus. For they knew that he and his disciples had come over together and that the disciples had gone off in their boat, leaving him behind. 23 Several boats from Tiberias landed near the place where the Lord had blessed the bread and the people had eaten. 24 When the crowd saw that Jesus wasn’t there, nor his disciples, they got into the boats and went across to Capernaum to look for him.
The crowd wanted Jesus to do their bidding. They didn’t know Jesus and they didn’t understand what He was bringing to them. Jesus is Lord and the people wanted a servant to do their bidding.
09/20 John 6:21
Then they were eager to let him in, and immediately the boat arrived at their destination!
Time does not have a hold on Jesus. He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. Time runs down on us. Aging is a difficult taskmaster but we will always, always, always be with Jesus. He will never leave us nor will He abandon us to the ravages of time.
09/19 John 6:18-20
Soon a gale swept down upon them as they rowed, and the sea grew very rough. 19 They were three or four miles out when suddenly they saw Jesus walking on the water toward the boat. They were terrified, 20 but he called out to them, “I am here! Don’t be afraid.”
We can live a fearless life in Christ. Nothing can separate us from the Lord. Nothing can destroy us. Nothing can defeat us. Jesus is in control and will never let us go. There is wonder working power in the Lord. Jesus saves and saves us completely.
