John 6:35

John 6:35 - Jesus said to them, "I am the bread of life..." (NASB)

What point is it if you have a bunch of great things, but the thing that sustains you is missing? Like winning the lottery the day before your terminal cancer finally has its way.

Yesterday I wrote about Jesus being like a building foundation, but when he says he's the bread of life, it suggests something different. We need food every day. We can't just make do eating once a week. We can hear/read something and act on that for a long period of time - but we still need to eat regularly. The idea of this blog is to get myself (and the others who start posting to it) writing down our thoughts when we read the Bible. If you don't write when you read the Bible, I encourage you start. It really helps it get into your system more. And if you can make yourself accountable to others, then even better. We do need to eat regular meals, after all.
