MEMORY VERSE: For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring. (Acts 17:28).
INTRODUCTION: When the crowd had been fed by Jesus, they could not stay away from Him because He met their immediate need (food). This happened t:o an extend that He left them, but they still followed Him.
When He told them “For I have come down from heaven to do the will of God who sent me, not to do my own will.”, “They began to argue among themselves. He went further to tell them, “I am the bread of life” they began to grumble on hearing “I am the bread that came down from heaven.” to the stage that they deserted Jesus for what He said
Where else can you go when He said, “I am the bread of life”. For Jesus knew from the beginning who he believe in Him. That’s why at times, we go to other places in search of help and solution to their problems, ignoring solution inside of us.
CONCLUSION: the only place you can go to and your problems will be solved is to the bread of LIFE. He made it clear “For in him we live and move and have our being.” “I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you cannot have eternal life within you. But anyone who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise that person at the last day.” Where else shall you go? “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus the author and finisher of our faith”
PRAYER: Lord we pray that You will be the only place we can run to in all situation and circumstances of our life in Jesus name
