2)    I AM the Bread of Life

“Jesus said to them, ‘I AM the Bread of Life. Whoever comes to Me will not be hungry, and whoever believes in Me will never be thirsty.” ~John 6:35 WEB

“I AM the Bread of Life.” ~John 6:48 WEB

  1. Always good to be reminded of these truths!
    It was brought to my attention not long ago, and I don’t know why I never connected it. But I AM is the name God gave Moses to tell the people His name. I AM. Then Jesus comes and states all these I AMs. It was like a light went on that thrilled my soul. Proof positive that Jesus was the Son of God. If you need the proof. 🙂

  2. I often have to check myself and remember that Jesus is the VINE–I’m just a branch. I don’t have to give life/direction/nourishment to my people. I can only encourage them to find the Vine.
