The Bread of Life

 Ever smelled fresh baked bread?? Bread has this character about it that when you smell it you begin to salavate and want it. The aroma feels the room, and no matter if you are hungry or not, you want to to taste it. The great thing about bread is it can come in so many different ways: French Toast, French Loaf, Italian, or in dessert form: Cinnoman, fruit filled, glazed, ect... (makes me want to bake now. Leslie, Where are you?)   Jesus came saying, " I am the Bread of Life." Also, John 6:51, "I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. And the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.” Then at the last supper, He also took the bread and broke is saying, "This is my body which is broken for you."
  We have tasted the bread and its left us wanting more, but the bread is not just for us to hold on to. It's not fo us to stockpile and hoard. It's been made to share; to break and give to others. If we are getting our Bread daily then others should be smelling the freshness of what is rising, and in smelling they should be wanting to taste. In tasting they should be made full. To often we aren't getting our bread fresh. To often we are not giving it to others. Oh we will share them the recipe at times, or tell them where to go to find it, but never taking from what we have to give to others.
  Let us be that frangrence as Paul writes, "a fragrant aroma, an acceptable sacrifice, well-pleasing to God." and "to those that are being saved, A fragrant of Life to Life."
   Let's Eat...
