In His Word

‘Jesus is the only Manna’

“And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst”, John6:35.

 

Manna had the educational purpose of teaching people to depend on God for all our needs. Physically, we see manna fall from heaven to feed the Israelites, spiritually, it proves that God the Father is the source of all our life’s needs which He can supply according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Prophet Moses said in Duet8:3...”And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live”. John stated emphatically that ‘in the beginning was the word....

When we take a look at the fuller statement of v35 in vss48-51 Jesus was trying to make us understand that all we need is Him for a fuller life
I am that bread of life. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live forever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

In other words, Jesus is the only manna you need in any and every level of your life.
That means you can depend on Him in any crisis or emergency in every aspect of your life. Nothing is too small or insignificant for Him to take notice and be available to you. If it concerns you, it concerns Him. His eye is always upon you, and He has written your name in the palm of His hand (Isaiah 49:16).
Patriarch Job gave us an insight when he encourage  us to acquaint ourselves with God so good shall come unto us. When we get closer to God, we’ll discover that

  1. He cares and He carries.
  2. He promises and He performs.
  3.  He acts and He accomplishes.
  4. He forgives and He forgets.

Can we encourage you to honour that invitation of the Messiah.....’he that cometh’
