The Gospel of Luke is one of my favorite places to read about Jesus. As my husband says, Jesus is either on his way to eat, eating, or talking about food in this account of his life. I love that. As a person who has been in food service both formally and informally my whole life; I grew up in a family of eight on the mission field where every meal was restaurant-size quantities; I love seeing how much Jesus used such a normal, basic thing in our life, like food and hunger, to reveal himself to us.
Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty” (John 6:35 NIV). Our New Covenant is based on Jesus alone. And Jesus doesn’t have to provide manna anymore like He did in the Old Testament; He is our bread of life and He quenches our thirst with living water.
So are we selfishly guzzling His precious gift or are we turning around and offering it to the next thirsty person behind us?
