Jesus said, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.’
Many people who had been fed from the loaves and fish in the narrative we read last week, followed Jesus by boat to Capernaum. He explained to them that they should be looking for the bread from heaven, the spiritual food which would sustain them in their daily lives. His reply when they asked how they should do this, was, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never be hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” Jesus will always be there for us, to give us spiritual food and drink, if we come to him. We can do this by praying, by reading his words in the Bible and by our actions in our daily lives. When we need that extra bit of strength, confidence or guidance, we should ‘come to him’ and ‘believe’ in him and he will not fail us.
