Our new sermon series helps us take an up close look at Jesus’ famous I AM words. This week’s famous statement: I am the bread of life! (John 6:35)
Pastor Bryce challenged us with these words: If I really believe that Jesus is the Bread of Life, then I believe that he sustains, he fills, and he changes me. But what does that mean? Practically? In our life? To make Jesus’ statement applicable and practical in our life, here are a few questions you might want to ponder:
- What are you working on, sweating over, striving towards, placing your hope in or being filled by, that is not eternal? How do you expect this something to fulfill you?
- What’s one perishable thing in your current life that you can put away? Eliminate from your busy schedule?
- What is one eternal thing you can pick up? One spiritual discipline? One memory verse that you learn? One uplifting spiritual song? Something that fills you with God’s presence.
Jesus challenges us that we eat Him. This is of course not possible, literally. But, as Bryce said, we can take Jesus’ words in and digest them well. His promises are that we will be fulfilled, or to use Jesus’ words: never go hungry again.
Be intentional in filing your life with God’s presence.
Through the Bible in one Year
Join us in reading through the entire Bible in one year. Each day of this plan guides you through passages from both the Old and New Testaments, allowing you to see connections between the history of our faith, and the fulfillment of God’s redemptive plan. Readings average four chapters in length, so it is posible to do. When you use the YouVersion Bible App, you can even have the app read the Bible text to you – very useful when you are in the car or otherwise occupied with your hand.
All you need to do is click the link to the Bible Plan, which should lead you straight to the Bible app. Your two options are now (1) to read the plan on your own, one day at the time. Or (2) you can make it more fun and rewarding, by sharing the plan with one or more friends, and then even “Talk about it”.
