I Am the Bread of Life: God Will Fill All Your Needs
A. Bread in biblical culture...
1. "Bread as ordinary daily food. Ancient man of Bible times had a simple diet including the important element of bread. The early Hebrews counted it along with water as vital for daily existence, a food which was normally eaten at home or taken on a journey. Without it, the Israelite felt his life was in danger. Bread was counted as the staff of life (called “the staff of bread,” “the whole stay of bread”).
The NT emphasis is placed on the necessity of bread for the daily life, as seen in the ministry of Jesus when He quoted a portion of Deuteronomy 8:3 to Satan and later showed concern for the food needs of the 5,000 and of the 4,000.
The reference in the Lord’s Prayer to bread certainly stresses the human dependence on a daily supply of bread (cf. also the manna supplied in the wilderness).”
*Encyclopedia of the Bible
2. Bread was used in worship as the Bread of Presence in the Most Holy Place of the tabernacle.
3. Bread from Heaven or manna fed the Israelites in the wilderness daily.
4. Bread was a key component of the Passover and then the Lord's Supper.
B. Jesus chose bread to illustrate His presence…
1. Jesus fed the five thousand with bread. He then withdrew to a solitary place.
2. Jesus walked on water to reach the disciples. He identified Himself as “I AM.”
3. The crowd caught up with Jesus to receive more of the benefits but Jesus spoke to them of eternal life.
4. Jesus makes the declaration, “I AM the bread of life!”
C. Jesus chose bread because…
2. He represents eternal life not physical life.
3. “I AM” is represented throughout Scripture.
4. He is the only one who can fill the need of hunger and thirst.
D. Jesus will meet all your needs…
1. Jesus didn’t necessarily come to satisfy all our physical desires, but to change them at our core.
2. Jesus came to change our desires…so He could become our primary desire.
3. Jesus came to fill the deep need we all have…that deep need that can only be filled by Jesus.
4. We all have needs, emotionally, physically, mentally and spiritually that can only be filled by Jesus.
