I AM The Bread of Life
In the passage we are considering today, Jesus Christ tells us the second thing we need to know about him when he says, “I am the bread of life.” What does that mean, and what does it mean for us? We can sum it up this way: Because Jesus Christ is the bread of life, he alone offers the satisfaction we seek. Join us to consider three implications of the fact that Jesus is the bread of life.
I. Because Jesus Christ is the bread of life, we must seek him.
II. Because Jesus Christ is the bread of life, we must come to him.
III. Because Jesus Christ is the bread of life, we must feed on him.
Sermon Discussion Questions:
1. Do you think there are an increasing number of people who are unhappy and dissatisfied or do you think it has been pretty constant over time? Explain your answer.
2. Why do you suppose that people who seem to have it all (money, success, respect, etc.) are sometimes the most miserable people?
3. What does Jesus mean in verse 27 when he says, “Do not work for the food that perishes but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you”? What is the practical application of that for you in your life today?
4. How can Jesus call people to come to him and also say “no one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him”? What does this say about our spiritual condition apart from God’s work of grace in our hearts?
5. What is the difference between Jesus saying, “There is the bread of life, go out and get it” and “I am the bread of life, come to me”?
