“ I am the living bread that came down from heaven; whoever eats this bread will live forever; and the bread that I will give is my Flesh for the life of the world.”
John 6 : 44 – 51

Jesus does not want us to die for lack of spiritual nourishment. Jesus Christ—in the greatest gesture of humility—became man like us, the same in every way except sin. But in an even greater gesture of humility, he descended further still to become our spiritual food.
Jesus is the bread of life. His words nourish the spirit. All we have to do is respond to this love. But we have been given the freedom to accept or reject God’s grace and love. God gives us this choice so that our relationship with Him is the result of our own decision. A relationship between adults that is forced is not a real relationship — it does not reflect true love. It is love that God wants from us, not because He needs it for Himself, but because He knows that this is what is best for us.
Did you ever feel that you are not being loved? If so, it is because you’re looking for love in the wrong place. God loves us no matter who we are in this world. Why can’t we love God back?
