John 6: 32-33 ” Jesus said to them, ‘I tell you the truth, it is not Moses who has given you the bread from heaven, but it is My Father who gives you the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.’ “

There’s nothing like a fresh, hot loaf of homemade bread just out of the oven.  The wonderful smell fills the kitchen and my husband is usually there waiting patiently…butter knife in hand.  But what happens to that homemade bread in a few days?  What satisfies our hunger for a few days suddenly becomes moldy and uneatable.  And that’s the biggest difference between natural and spiritual bread.  Natural bread has a short shelf-life…but spiritual bread is eternal.  Natural bread will never totally fill you up…you’ll keep getting hungry, while spiritual bread lasts forever.  That’s why Jesus said, “I am the bread of life.  He who comes to Me will never go hungry, and he who believes in Me will never be thirsty.” (John 6:35)
