WE ALL NEED JESUS – THE BREAD OF LIFE
19th Sunday in Ordinary Time
To live physically, we need whatever your staple food is but to live spiritually abundantly and eternally, we need Jesus. He is to the soul what food is to the body and air is to the lungs. Jesus is the source of life that lasts forever and joy that never fades. Jesus is he who will never let you down. Jesus is the one who ultimately can satisfy our deepest needs and longings. We all need Jesus, even if we already have him. We just need him more and more, to enjoy him more, to love him more.
Heavenly Father, thank you that in your grace you sent the Lord Jesus Christ to be our living Bread from heaven. Thank you that in him is life, abundant life – eternal life, and that in him I have all that I need to sustain my soul. Thank you that his body is my bread and his blood is my drink and that through his death and resurrection, I have been made a new creation in Christ. AMEN.
