John 6:33, 7:37-38
Today's message is taken from my monthly devotional Heavenly Bread that is published on Amazon's CreatSpace and Kindle.
....If any man thirsts, let him come unto Me, and drink. He that believeth on Me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
Today's scriptures make a profound declaration regarding the living bread and water that is required for eternal life. This is the declaration made by Christ Himself telling all who believe that He is that bread and water and it behooves all humanity to eat and drink of Him and be saved.
Notice how Jesus uses this parabolic saying to make His point of salvation; physical food and water is a necessity for this life's sustainment; without them the body perishes. This is true of one's spiritual life.
This question comes to mind, how do one eat and drink of Christ's bread and water? This is achieved by staying connected to the vine-Christ through daily scripture reading, meditating on the Word, and daily prayer. Reading God's Word, the reader must be willing to abide by the Word as well as allowing the Holy Spirit to control our lives as He is our heavenly compass.
Water is a symbol of the Holy Spirit that fills our souls daily with a fresh anointing of God's love, grace and mercy. Bread is considered the heavenly manna that come down from heaven through our daily Bible reading while allowing the Holy Spirit to reveal the truth of God's Word.
Eat, drink and be filled with an everlasting life. A life that never grows old.
