The Bread of Life

John 6:50-51
     Anyone who eats the bread from Heaven, however, will never die! I am the living bread that came down from Heaven. Anyone who eats this bread will live forever; and this bread, which I will offer so the world may live, is my flesh.

   The most important thing you can do to stay alive is eat! When you don't eat, your body gets weak and tired and eventually hits starvation mode! When you hit starvation mode, things begin to shut down and death could occur! The same thing happens to our spirit when we don't feed it the Bread of Life, which is God's Word!! Our spirits shut down and become dormant if it isn't in a regular routine of spending time in the Word! 

   This doesn't necessarily mean that you need to sit and read your Bible for hours upon hours and try to grasp some kind of meaning out of everything you just read, rather, take a scripture or two and meditate on them all day long. I heard a sermon from Joseph Prince once about meditating on the word, and he called it "chewing" on the word! He said to chew on a scripture all day long until you completely understand it and can apply it to your life and then move on to another!!! 

   So don't become spiritually anorexic!!! Feast on God's word!!! Make your spirit as fat as it can be!!!! 

This devotion was written by Maggi Sellers! I am a work in progress on becoming spiritually fat:) I hope this blesses you as much as it did me!!

I am so proud of our church and church family for their loyalty and pure love for Jesus Christ to spread the Word of God to non believers and Christians....TO EVERY ONE!!!! I love the part Maggi about don't become Spiritually anorexic :) LOVE it!!!!
