If we could live without eating, it would be a cheap method of existence; but I have never found out the secret, and I do not mean to make experiments. I am the BREAD OF LIFE (vers. It does not remain bread. This perfect satisfaction is found only in Christ. Spurgeon. Spurgeon. Is time nothing, and eternity everything? The soul cannot live on the Pope, or what of Christ may come through the Pope. That it feeds is the test and signal that it lives.2. Corn belongs to the second great order of plants — the lily order; and according to the evolutionist's theory it is either a lily in the making, or in a degenerate and degraded form. See to it, then, that you breathe the atmosphere of love and of kindness, of purity and of honesty, day by day.3. See those two trees. The result of feeding by faith upon the Bread of life is - satisfaction and gladness, health and vigour of soul, and a life which is immortal. There is no necessary after process of assimilation. I ordered a bacon cheeseburger. The mistake men are constantly making is, that they seek to feed their higher nature upon wrong food, which may satisfy for the time, but in the long run cannot keep back the pangs of a noble spiritual hunger.4. If the truth which we possess is not digestible, it is very poor stuff. If so, how important that this truth should be turned into a principle of action in our daily life. Thus in a literal sense Christ is the Bread of Life. d. To serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul. I am THE GOOD SHEPHERD (John 10:11,14).V. The essential meaning of my physical life is, that I come into contact with food. 1. Man, when left to himself, is an unhappy being. That it feeds is the test and signal that it lives.2. And farther than this I think we should go here. I must get as much of the heavenly food as I possibly can, for I need it so greatly."(C. A Christ who is no sin-bearer, who holds no relation to the Divine law as its atonement — a Christ, of whom it can, only by the widest possible metaphor, be said, that He was made a curse — a Christ with no blood I And the same sad result of spiritual life is here again witnessed. We call it now the "staff of life." The essential meaning of my religious life is, that I as really and as utterly come into the Food of my spiritual nature — Christ.(W. (1)Christ, the Bread of Life, feeds and fills the human hunger for Divine sympathy. But all the effects of an unfilled hunger began to appear in them; their flesh wasted from their bones, their strength leaked till they scarcely had the energy of an infant; they could not crawl on in their journey more than a mile or two a day. But they grew weaker every day, and more emaciated; they were not hungry, for the plant seemed to satisfy the calling of hunger. Let us listen for a moment to what science has to tell us of the character and position of corn in the economy of nature. Come to Christ. Your duty to your child is done when you have given this; let him get the rest for himself. No, but silently, surely, swiftly, it assimilates them to itself. Man has not kept the requirements of God.

By coming to Him or believing on Him. (1)Christ, the Bread of Life, feeds and fills the human hunger for Divine sympathy. There are vast desires in us all, and when we are quickened they expand, and yet are satisfied.6. (c) The will hungers for liberty. Her life as an actress was glamorous, but there was something missing. Minor Prophets Thus, the tree takes the air and the sun. But all the effects of an unfilled hunger began to appear in them; their flesh wasted from their bones, their strength leaked till they scarcely had the energy of an infant; they could not crawl on in their journey more than a mile or two a day. The essential meaning of my physical life is, that I come into contact with food. I am the BREAD OF LIFE (vers. This life, like all others, grows by the process of assimilation. The last condition of spiritual assimilation which I mention, and the great one, is the presence of the vital principle — the vital principle which philosophy cannot find out, which chemistry cannot detect. But all the effects of an unfilled hunger began to appear in them; their flesh wasted from their bones, their strength leaked till they scarcely had the energy of an infant; they could not crawl on in their journey more than a mile or two a day. We must come to Him by the prescribed means — meditation on His Word and importunate prayer. But there must be something to be assimilated; and what this something is the text distinctly affirms. And we should come to place very little, if any, value upon the mere possession of truth. It needs a whole Christ. H. Spurgeon.If anybody were to say to me, "I have a man at home who stands in my hall, and has stood there for years, but he has never eaten a mouthful of bread all the time, nor cost me a penny for food," I should say to myself, "Oh, yes, that is a bronze man, I know, or a plaster cast of a man. So when a man hath once found the favour of God in his heart, and the love of God in Christ hath once lighted on it, and got assurance of it, he ceaseth then to be greedy of the world's trash, which is in regard of it but dross or pebble-stones to gold and diamonds, as mast to the best bread corn; yea, rather of far less worth or value to that than either of these are to it.(Fuller. How many remedies for the soul's hunger arc mere mockeries of unsatisfying! John 6:35-51 35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life. Look at ancient Egypt, ancient Greece. It turns to flesh and blood and bone. A Christ who is no sin-bearer, who holds no relation to the Divine law as its atonement — a Christ, of whom it can, only by the widest possible metaphor, be said, that He was made a curse — a Christ with no blood I And the same sad result of spiritual life is here again witnessed. "Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him," etc. That is its usual and well-fitting title. Is it true, that with- out holiness no one shall see the Lord? 3. But there must be something to be assimilated; and what this something is the text distinctly affirms. Shun evil and corrupt association. Could you live? It separated itself from its beautiful sisters, laid aside the glory of the coloured vesture and elegance which belonged to it as of right, and took instead the russet garments in which we see it now clad; and all in order that it might be of service in its day and generation, and give its own life and substance for the life and support of others. They used to be able to do very well from Sunday to Sunday, and I have known some of them get on with one meal on the Lord's day, and like it all the better if that was quickly served and soon over. W. Beecher.I remember what bread was to me when I was a boy. "I am the Bread of Life," He said, "I am the living Bread which came down from heaven." )False foodH. Pentateuch of Scripture. A fourth condition of spiritual assimilation is thought, intelligence. John 8:12).II. It is Christ who is the Bread of Life — not the Church, not truth, not doctrines; but Christ the personal Christ.2. So, many a post mortem moral examination, no doubt, will exhibit an abundance of moral truth within the soul. In the bright moonlight Jesus perhaps could see them struggling to row against the wind, so He came to them walking on the water. It is said that the Upas-tree is girt in with a circle of dead and rotting carcases of bird and beast. (4)Many stave off hunger by indifference, like the bears in winter, which are not hungry because they are asleep.Conclusion: All believers bear witness that Jesus Christ is satisfying to them.1. John 8:12).II. To be singled out from all other plants in the world as the very staff of human life were, I say, marvellous honour for so small and insignificant a plant. Better believe half of what you do, intelligently, with your whole soul, than believe it all, languidly, ignorantly.5. S. Mitchell, D. D.)The Bread of LifeJohn Crofts, M. A.Every one acknowledges the golden cornfields to be full of the highest spiritual teaching. 2. Now, not otherwise is it with the life of the soul. H. The plant that had laid aside its lily-dress, and put off all its glory — clothing itself in russet-brown, and stooping very low, that it might give its life for the many — and, moreover, that could even then only become life-giving bread by being first bruised and crushed and broken — I say we can well perceive how fitting a type in all these particulars it was of Him "who made Himself of no reputation," etc. Every leaf on your vine in spring-time is an open mouth, asking for these surrounding substances, that it may convert them into life for itself. The second condition is a good moral atmosphere. At last one of them perished of star- vation; the other was rescued in the last extremity of it. The Old Testament One stands before the cross, only to fall in worship. WHERE JESUS IS RECEIVED HE IS SUPREMELY SATISFYING —1. Duty is a Divine and immutable condition of moral growth. -------------------- So moral truth remains as so much unassimilated knowledge in the minds of thousands. (2)Divine forgiveness. This is worth nothing, unless it is wrought into the life; unless it be so assimilated as to lose the form of abstract truth, and become principle; unless it passes into, is converted into life. It does not lay them up as such, counting them treasures. No church, no religious privileges, can do much for any man or woman, who either has no home, or whose home is a bad one. It seemed to satisfy them; it seemed to fill them with a pleasant sense of comfort and repletion. Could you preserve health? Take two members of the same family again. They are of themselves nourishment for the mind, without any such after process. So, upon every side of these corrupt rings, are strewn the dead consciences, the lost souls of men. This is what Christ came into the world to be to men — the appropriate, satisfying, sustaining, upbuilding food for their highest nature. It is monstrous that this should be taken literally, for what greater crime could there be than to eat the flesh of our Saviour? Everywhere you look, people are building luxury homes. I am the LIGHT OF THE WORLD (chap. Leaving the simplicity of Christ, we have elaborated theological sciences, worked out a cunning symbolism, filled the Church with many coloured garments, and constituted splendid hierarchies. I am THE GOOD SHEPHERD (John 10:11,14).V. This latter theory is the generally accepted one. Sermon John 6:24-35 Life Giving Bread. Do not refuse the Bread of Life because there are some things in Him you cannot understand, any more than you refuse the bread upon your tables, though there are mysteries in it that no science can explain.2. On what ground does God provide for our bodily hunger? No; but it is blood in the veins of your rose, it is the blush upon its cheek, it is sweet odour filling the air. No, but silently, surely, swiftly, it assimilates them to itself. Thus, for instance, the sun is ninety-two millions of miles from the earth. John 6:35,41,48,51).III.

Christ meets the hungering of conscience, which feels that God must punish sin, but is appeased as it perceives that it has been punished in Christ.3. Many of us are daily guilty in this matter.
