25 Names of Jesus: {Day 5} Bread of Life

“Then Jesus declared, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty.” John 6:35

Pretty sure we have all been guilty (at one time or another) of trying to fill our lives with worldly things, in order to find happiness. I know I have. And sometimes the things we strive for are not even necessarily bad things. They may be very good things, on the contrary.

But what we have failed to realize is that true joy is found in Christ alone. He is the only thing that can truly fill us up, causing us to overflow with joy despite our circumstances, never to hunger or thirst again. He is the Bread of Life. The bread from Heaven, sent by God to give life, eternal life. And all we have to do is partake in the feast, allowing Him to fill us up.

I hope you are having fun hanging your 25 Names of Jesus advent ornaments and discussing His names with your family! Go here to read the other posts in this series and to download the free printable ornaments if you want to follow along as we countdown to Christmas!

Happy December, friends! It's the most wonderful time of the year! :)
