Pause

All of You is more than enough for all of me,

for ev’ry thirst and ev’ry need.

You satisfy me with Your love,

and all I have in You is more than enough.

“Enough” by Chris Tomlin and Louie Giglio (2002)

Listen

Jesus told them, “I assure you, it wasn’t Moses who gave the bread from heaven to you, but my Father gives you the true bread from heaven. The bread of God is the one who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.”

They said, “Sir, give us this bread all the time!”

Jesus replied, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.”

John 6:32–35

Think

By now the people are really hungry. They feasted with Jesus yesterday across the lake, but crossing a lake is hard work, and they are famished again. As Jesus reminds them of how God nourished the Israelites with manna in the wilderness, the crowd responds with an honest prayer: “Sir, give us this bread all the time!” Jesus wants to talk about life, and instead they want to talk about lunch.

Jesus answers, “I am the bread of life.” I am – an echo of the name used to reveal God's identity to Moses. And the bread of life – that gift of manna that brought such surprise to the Israelites, leaving them speechless save to ask “what?” in wonder. Jesus combines these two together; he is both the gift and the giver, the Lord and the loaf. And better than the manna that evaporated with the dew, Jesus promises, “Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” Jesus is enough.

Pray

Bread of life, nourish my soul. Strengthen my body that I might serve others in your name, and strengthen my spirit that I might love them as you do. Lord Jesus, you are enough for me. Amen.

Go

God has the power to provide you with more than enough of every kind of grace. That way, you will have everything you need always and in everything to provide more than enough for every kind of good work.
