John 6:33-35 ” For the bread of God is He Who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world. ‘Sir,’ they said, ‘from now on give us this bread.’ Then Jesus declared, ‘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.’ “

Many of the crowd around Jesus here had been with Him earlier when He had fed 5,000 with a few barley loaves and fish.  Having followed Jesus to Capernaum, they were looking forward to more miracles and food…in other words, they had come for Dinner and a Show.   But instead, Jesus offered them something life changing…He offered them eternal life.  Just as He offered living water to the Samaritan woman at the well…Jesus offered the bread of life to the crowd.  And He offers it to all of us today!  Think about it, the world-view philosophy is empty and will never quench our thirst or fill our soul like Jesus can…and our man-centered spirit is continually searching for fulfillment, but will never find it outside of accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior.
