Devotions from Jefferson Vann # 2406

John 6:28-33

Joh 6:28 They said to him, “What can we do to work the works of God?”
Joh 6:29 Jesus answered and said to them, “This is the work of God– that you believe in the one that he sent.”
Joh 6:30 This is why they said “What sign are you going to make so we may see and believe in you?” they asked. “What are you working?
Joh 6:31 Our fathers ate the manna in the desert, just as it has been written: He gave them bread from the sky to eat.”
Joh 6:32 Jesus said to them, “I am honestly telling you, Moses didn’t give you the bread from the sky, but my Father gives you the true bread from the sky.
Joh 6:33 Because the bread of God is the one who comes down from the sky and gives life to the world.”

true bread from the sky

God answered Moses’ prayer and gave the manna to the Israelites in the desert. That was a miracle, a work of God. But the people had to believe that work, collect and consume the manna to save themselves from starvation.

Now, Jesus tells his listeners that he is the true bread from the sky. If the people do not listen to him, believe his words, and follow him, they will starve. God has no other means to permanent life.

LORD, thank you for providing the true bread from the sky — Jesus Christ.
