I am the Bread of Life
 
 
August 19, 2018
 
"I Am the Bread of Life...At the Table"
 
Focus Scriptures: 
Proverbs 9:1-6     John 6:51-58
 

We have been exploring how Jesus is the Bread of Life and this Sunday we continue that journey. Our focus is on Jesus as the Bread of Life at the table, received as the Sacrament of Holy Communion. In the Proverbs text Wisdom is setting a table and invites others to “eat of my bread and drink of the wine I have mixed.” By doing so you will “walk in the way of insight.” In John’s gospel Jesus is trying to explain that in order to have life you must eat of the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood. He describes it by saying, “…for my flesh is true food and my blood is true drink.” We are offered this meal every Sunday in order to refresh our souls, and remember who we are in Christ.

Daily Devotion
August 14, 2018

 

Each Sunday we accept the words from Jesus, “This is my body, shed for you,” as we receive communion. But in John 6:35, 41-51 the case is made that we are not inherently faithful. In fact, it almost seems at times we must be dragged into having faith by God. Faith is without a frame of reference or without context because as God made us as individuals, so too is how we are led to having faith in God and Jesus. We must be drawn to the Word in our own way before we can understand it and have faith. Like our church, our relationship with God will grow and change once we are able to accept that we do not know everything – in fact, we know very little. It is through faith in Jesus Christ that we find our calling and our strength, not in the knowledge and understanding of the world today.
