Always Hungry?

And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. John 6:35

As a mom of growing teens, it seems my job to satisfy their hunger is never­ ending. As soon as one meal is done, it is time to start thinking about the next one. But Jesus satisfies spiritual needs in another way. He gives you the final meal of his body and blood through his sacrifice on the cross so you don’t need to keep searching for and preparing other meals to feed your spirit.

In today’s self-help world of easy answers, even Christians are tempted to seek answers to life’s difficult problems outside of the meaning of Jesus’ sacrifice for us and our sins. So many are struggling to find the answers that are readily available by spending time with God in prayer.

Let us come to Jesus in faith, knowing that he and he alone has the power to redeem, restore, and reconcile. Go to the source of true satisfaction today­ seek Jesus and believe in him for all your needs.
