Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.” John 6:35
In the dieting world, there is an obsession with carbs. There are all varieties of low-carb, no-carb diets that promise to help you improve your overall health and shed those unwanted pounds. But there is one carbohydrate that we all need.
Jesus is the cosmic carbohydrate that promises to satisfy us when we are hungry. All we have to do is believe in him. But belief isn’t just an intellectual appreciation. It’s more than just memorizing some historical facts or flippantly acknowledging God.
Believing in Jesus Christ means coming to him and fully yielding your life to him. Don’t fall into the trap of believing that you can earn God’s favor. Salvation is not achieved by works. It is achieved by faith in Christ and the work he has done for you. Grow to trust in Christ and you will discover the only relationship that will truly satisfy the pains of your spiritual hunger.
Lord, I believe that you are the bread of life. Help me to trust in you and yield totally to you. Increase my faith so that I can grow in your ways. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
