I am the living bread that came down out of heaven;
if anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever.
There were two trees in the Garden of Eden: the tree of the knowledge of good and evil and the tree of life.
God said not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil brings because He knows that it only brings death.
Jesus is the New Testament version of the tree of life. Mere information or knowledge about Jesus will never satisfy, you need to come to Him and eat of Him.
Jesus is all about life. He said, “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” John 10:10
We all have to eat, but mere physical food can never fully satisfy us. We are spiritual beings, and our spiritual hunger cannot be satisfied apart from Him.
Jesus invites us to eat of Him. He even went so far as to say, “He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him.” John 6:56
Some of this is symbolized in communion. I encourage you to take communion with this in mind.
You do not have to wait to go to church to take communion. You can grab some bread and juice and sneak alone to your favorite spot to eat of Him.
As you spend time with Him, thank Him that He is the Bread of Life and tell Him that you choose to eat of Him by faith.
