We are back in the swing of things with piano, Taekwondo, and study room as well. (For those of you who are reading this and are not in Korea, study room is an after school program where students in grades 4 to 6 go over study materials that they need to pass their grades) This has given my husband and myself some much needed quiet time. By this, I mean we are sleeping!
This morning my husband slept until about 11:00 because he went to a funeral last night. He was tired from the funeral and I was tired just from life!
We celebrated our anniversary a little early (next week!) by going to Outback Steakhouse for lunch. We had a lovely meal and I absolutely love the warm bread with the whipped butter! The bread melts in your mouth as you eat it!
I had a second serving of bread at a friend's place this afternoon. Eugene took a baguette and spread a little butter on each slice along with garlic salt. She then baked the bread in the oven for about five minutes. Her daughters and I happily ate this amazing snack for about fifteen minutes!
My husband just sat down on the couch and happily ate the last pastry. I asked for half and he looked at me like I was crazy. He gave half about a minute later.
Needless to say, this was a bread day.
Jesus said he was, "The Bread of life". Have you ever wondered what he meant by that?
He was born in the House of Bread, Bethlehem. Bread is a symbol of spiritual sustenance. He directs to two feeding miracles. One with two five and five loaves which results in 12 baskets of leftovers. With the second feeding miracle, there are 7 baskets of leftovers.
In John 6:35 Jesus explains plainly, "I am the bread of life. No one who comes to me will ever be hungry again, and no one who believes in Me will be thirsty again."
His ministry culminates in the Last Supper when he holds up a piece of bread and say, "This is my body. The bread that will sustain you will be broken. And after it's broke, it will feed everyone who believes. Take it, and eat it." Everything that has bee taught up to that point about manna was a foreshadowing of the Messiah.
This rabbi wanted to fill your mind with the goodness of God.
He wanted you to taste, see, and experience that the Lord is good.
He is the bread of life so you can taste, see and experience that the Lord is good.
By the way, the boys ate the bread this afternoon. They enjoyed it with mango butter. I just kept thinking about Jesus and bread.
