Bite, Chew, Graze

Are you hungry? Is there a gnawing in you? Do you feel that something is missing? Do you feel that no matter what you do, purchase, or where you go, you still want more? Do you fill the emptiness but it quickly returns?

If so, maybe it’s your spirit that is hungry. If that is the case, the solution isn’t more food, clothes, or earthly success. The solution is Jesus who describes Himself in John 6:51 as the bread of life who came from heaven. “I am the living bread that came down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread also which I will give for the life of the world is My flesh.”

Jesus is to our spirit what food is to our body. Our body can’t live without food. Our spirit can’t live without Jesus.

Receive Christ as Savior if you haven’t already. Then, begin each day with bite-size Bible verses. Chew on them throughout the day. At night, graze on the promises of God. Go to sleep with your soul filled and satisfied in Christ. Wake hungry for more of Jesus. Grow as a Christian and feed others.

Lord Jesus, we praise You, BREAD OF LIFE. Thank You for coming from heaven and being to our spirit what food is to our body. Help us recognize our hunger is only filled by You. Increase our appetite for Scripture so by it we grow in respect to our salvation.
