This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. (John 6:50-71)

We eat that we’ll live forever…and never perish. The food that sustains our body for nourishment comes from the Father. The food that we eat each day comes from the Father. Sure, we go out and buy it, or harvest it…but who owns it? God of course. For everything which is created was created by the Father. (All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. John 1:3 )

Thereto the same theory in the Spiritual sense, Father provides the “Bread” for us to eat daily. The daily consumption of partaking in His Word and digesting the meaning of the Father’s ways is what keeps us “ALIVE”

Surely Christ embodies love and is of love from His Father…and we’re created in love. Love and faith go together. We can’t do one without the other. I heard a pastor make a prolific statement that resonated within my soul, “Love is the motivator, but Faith is in the initiator.” When we believe and absorb His daily bread, we acclimate and assimilate into producing t fruit…and then love will be a part of our daily lives.

Spiritual Bread is from the Father; it nourishes our marrow, and provides for our needs in all capacities. He is the cultivator of origin and knew us before we were born. He knows our hearts, He knows our names. He is our provider and refuge. He is love…We love Him and yet…we haven’t seen Him. We know that He exists because we have Faith. Faith and love go hand-in-hand. One can’t exist without the other.

Father, thank You for the word and Your love, Amen
