People who benefited from Jesus’ miracle of food provisions had shallow minds. They misconceived Jesus as a magician, and they would prefer that he become a king so that he could satisfy them with more magic. However, Jesus corrected the nonsense! He said,
“Most assuredly, I say to you, you seek me, not because you saw the signs, but because you ate of the loaves and were filled. Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to everlasting life, which the Son of Man will give you, because God the Father has set His seal on Him” (John 6:26-27).
Food for belly and belly for food, but they would all be destroyed together! Human efforts should not be centered on physical foods that would digest and be flushed into the toilet. All people should pursue spiritual foods that will last eternally. Jesus Christ is the bread of life that lasts forever, and anyone who eats the bread will never suffer hunger again. The Savior has stated, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me shall never hunger, and he who believes in me shall never thirst” (John 6:35).
Dear Jesus Christ, I believe that you are the bread of life that comes from God, and I confess you as my personal Lord and Savior. Henceforth, I will serve you with all my might, and I will follow you unto the end. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
