In the human heart there is a hunger that nothing in this world can satisfy. We long for the fullness of life, and we have a sense that all the tragedy of life in this world wasn’t meant to be this way. We hunger for healing and peace, for God’s shalom.
It can be found. The hunger of the human heart can be satisfied; God has offered us the bread of life. “Jesus declared, ‘I am the bread of life. Whoever comes to me will never go hungry, and whoever believes in me will never be thirsty'” (Jn. 6:35, NIV). The dialogue in which He spoke these words scandalized many, but He was speaking of the profound mystery of the gospel.
Our souls may be satisfied in Christ. Union with Him by faith is the way of life and peace and joy.
Do you hunger inside? God has offered you the bread of life. Come to Him, and hunger and thirst no more.
