This week, as I was digging “Into the Word,” I came across the passage in John 6 where Christ says that He is the Bread of Life:
Jesus said, “I am the Bread of Life.
The person who aligns with me
hungers no more
and thirsts no more, ever” (v.35, MSG).
The word “align” in this translation struck me. This isn’t Jesus inviting you to a “have it your way” fast-food meal. No, this is the Savior of the Universe saying, if you yield to me, then you will be at peace with me forever. I pray that this week, God helps me to make a wiser choice — to not settle for the “quick fix,” but to really invest in Him and the food the truly satisfies.
Q4U: Do you find yourself sampling other fare, rather that the rich food He provides?
