Rhapsody of Realities TeeVo Devotional September 21st – He’s The Living Bread

(You Have The Same Life With Jesus Christ)

TO THE BIBLE: John 6:31
“Our fathers ate the manna in the desert; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.’”

LET’S TALK
What we read in our opening verse was the Lord Jesus addressing the Jews. In verses 32-33, He continued, “…Moses did not give you the bread from heaven, but My Father 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.” Then in the forty-ninth verse, He further emphasised His point: “Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that one may eat of it and not die” (John 6:49-50).

Jesus is the Living Bread, the bread which came down from heaven. He explained this to His disciples in John 6:51, saying, “I am the living bread which came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever; and the bread that I shall give is My flesh, which I shall give for the life of the world.”

Then Paul, in 1 Corinthians 10:17, explains how all this connects to us. He said, “For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one bread.” If we’re one bread with Him, it, therefore, means we have the same life because we’re born of the Word (1 Peter 1:23), just as He is the Word made flesh (John 1:14).

Colossians 1:18 says, “And he (Christ) is the head of the body, the church….” The head and the body of Christ share the same life. If we share His life, then we also share His health, prosperity, strength and glory.

No wonder He calls us “partakers of the divine nature,” which means “associates of the God-kind.” 1 John 4:17 says, “…as He is, so are we in this world.” You’re exactly like Jesus Christ! So, walk as He walked—in glory, righteousness, strength and dominion. Hallelujah!

Praise God! I’m one with the Lord, because I’m born of His living and eternal Word! My ancestry is divine; I’m a victor. I live above this world as I reign and rule through Jesus Christ. Hallelujah!
