November 12, 2016: Bread of Life

Daily Berry Patch Devotions in 2016 - Day 317  

Devotional Song:  … GO TO THIS LINK …  Please take the time to take in a YouTube video of images and from an anonymous worship group singing … On Bread, One Body … singing of Christians becoming the Body in Christ and partaking of Him as the Bread of Life until we join Him in Glory.

Highlight Verse[s]: John 6:51 [NKJV] … USE THIS LINK …  
51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.” 
… Jesus declares that HE is the bread of life, from Whom we partake of His essence daily. 
Highlight Context: John 6:31-54 [NKJV] … USE THIS LINK 
… Jesus teaches on Who He is … the bread of life.

Reference Passage … None today [NKJV] …  

My Journal for Today:  … Our Daily Bread author, Keila Ochoa, teaches about Jesus being the “Bread of Life.” She wrote: I live in a small Mexican city where every morning and evening you can hear a distinctive cry: “Bread!” A man with a huge basket on his bike [see attached photo] offers a great variety of fresh sweet and salty breads for sale. I used to live in a bigger city, where I had to go to the bakery to buy bread. So I enjoy having fresh bread brought to my door. …
 Someone has said that evangelism is really one beggar telling another beggar where he found bread. Many of us can say, “Once I was spiritually hungry, spiritually starving because of my sins. Then I heard the good news. Someone told me where to find bread: in Jesus. And my life changed!” 

The question, I believe for me (and others), from today’s ODB entry boils down to whether we partake of God’s daily bread (i.e., His essence) every day, … and equally importantly, whether we’re sharing that bread with others who will die eternally without it. I don’t know about you, but I need to share the Bread of Life with others today.

My Prayer Today: Heavenly Father, … Show me someone who needs the Bread of Life today; and help me to be willing to share it [i.e. You] with them. … Amen
