Partakers Of That One Bread.

"For we, though many, are one bread and one body; for we all partake of that one bread."
I Corinthians 10:17 NKJV

Christianity is not a religion. Religion recognizes a great chasm between the worshipper and the worshipped and sometimes seeks to widen it so that no one can attain its highest ideals so people can be in continual pursuit of an illusive god. That's not Christianity. We did not look for God neither do we live in unending pursuit of Him. God came in Christ looking for us, and when He found us He made us one with Himself. He called Himself the Bread of life and now that we are joined with Him as one Spirit, are all partakers of that one Bread.

Jesus told the Jews that anyone who would come to Him would never hunger and anyone who believes in Him would never thirst( John 6:35). Who talks like that? Well, wait until Jesus increased the intensity of His message. When he hit the crescendo of His revelation in John chapter 6 many of His disciples couldn't take it anymore. Their capacity to receive His depths had run out. Here is what He said, " he who feeds on Me will live because of Me." John 6:57. What are you feeding on my friend? If you feed on Jesus you will live because of Him. The next line hits me differently; "This is the bread which came down from heaven—not as your fathers ate the manna, and are dead. He who eats this bread will live forever.”  (John 6:58).

Do you want to live forever as Jesus said? Well it's easy my friend,  just feed on Jesus. The words of Christ are Spirit and they are life. When you delve into the Word to feed, go straight to the person of Jesus. Don't dabble into the law, you will soon dry up, shrivel and die. People who feed on Jesus and what He has done for us will ever be like a tree planted by the river- evergreen. They flourish in the house of God and are ever beaming with joy, peace and hope. And now He calls you an extension of that Bread from heaven. When you speak the Word of Christ, you release life to your hearers and just like Jesus you have also become a life giving spirit because you are a partaker of that Bread of life. What a calling!

I am a partaker of the Bread of life. I am a life giver in the name of Jesus.
