Daily Devotional
February 27
 
I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
John 6:51
 
Human beings can survive longer on bread than on any other substance. Although it is baked in different ways and fixed in different forms, bread is truly cross-cultural. It’s also extremely palatable, for most of us eat some sort of bread every day.

But the most intriguing aspect about Jesus’ identification with bread is the process by which bread is made: A seed of grain is planted in the ground. After some weeks, it springs up and grows into maturity. Then it is cut down, ground up, and placed in the fire. After it has thoroughly baked, it is enjoyed by humanity.

That’s exactly what happened to Jesus. A seed was planted in the womb of Mary miraculously. God Incarnate came forth, and grew to maturity. He was cut down as He was pinned to the Cross; ground up as He was cursed and spat upon; and placed in the fire of God’s wrath as all of our sin was absorbed by Him personally.

And because He had been planted, cut down, ground up, and burned in the very fire of God’s wrath, you and I have the opportunity to eat of Him daily — never tiring of Him, always receiving strength and sustenance for the challenges of any given day. Truly, Jesus is the Bread of Life. The analogy is perfect.
