 "Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that   comes from the mouth of God." Matt. 4:4; Deut. 8:3

 "Do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or   about your body, what you will eat or drink; or will wear. Is   not life important than food, and the body more important   than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow   or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly   Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than   they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour of his   life? ... So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or   'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the   pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father   knows that you need them. But, seek first his kingdom   and his righteousness, and all these things will be   given to you as well. Therefore, do not worry about   tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day   has enough trouble of its own."       - from Matthew 6:25-34

 Everyone who hears these words and puts them into   practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.                                                             - Matthew 7:24

 Journey for the Bread

 "Journey for the Bread" is my understanding our spiritual life for Jesus   Christ - "Bread that Came down from Heaven." (John 6:41) The gospel   writer, John testifies to us "Who Jesus was" in his gospel (Chapter 6)   with an 'I am" saying. "Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that   endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. On him God   the Father has placed his seal of approval (v. 27)." ... The Work of God   is this: to believe in the one he has sent (v. 29). ... "It is not Moses who   has given you the bread from heaven, but it is my Father who gives you   the true bread from heaven. For the bread of God is he who comes   down from heaven and gives life to the world." (vv. 31-32). ...

 "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and   he who believes in me will never be thirsty" (v. 35).

 "Revelation" Johanine literature of apocalypse refers "the Bread" to   "New Jerusalem," coming down from heaven. (Rev. 21:1-10, esp. v. 10)

 The biblical implications of the bread tells me about the presence of   Jesus Christ in my personal journey as well as in yours. But, the   presence should be a future event as some readers can get. He was, is   and is to come. The voice from God through John's message persuade   me sufficient enough to confess that Jesus of Nazareth as true Son and   true man. 

 I can imagine how astounded John was when he saw Him, as   described:  "When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he   placed his right hand on me (perhaps on his left shoulder) and said: "Do   not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. I am the Living One; I was   dead, and behold I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of   death and Hades (Revelation 1:17-18).

 "The Bread of God" (John 6:33) calls you and me to "come and believe"   that He is from God. The Journey for the Bread helps us understand our   purpose in life. Through faith in Jesus as the Christ and the Son of God,   we may have life in his name (John 20:31).

 I love to leave here a couple of things I have learned from him.
