Concerning the Word of Life

Concerning the Word of Life

Many Bible passages  need to be spiritually discerned  —  they are not literal  —  so they are not  to be thought of  in an earthly,  physical way.     One example is  where Jesus says  in John 6:35,

I am the bread of life;  he who comes  to Me  will not hunger,  and he who believes  in Me  will never thirst.

Jesus is  not speaking  of a physical loaf  of bread.     When we eat  earthly bread,  we will soon  be hungry again.     But,  when we accept Jesus  as our Savior  and believe in Him,  we are spiritually satisfied  forever.     Believing in Jesus,  we won’t be searching  for anything else  to satisfy  our longings  in life.

In that same chapter,  Jesus had also explained,

For the bread  of God  is that  which comes down  out of heaven,  and gives life  to the world.     John 6:33

I am  the living bread  that came down  out of heaven;  if anyone eats  of this bread,  he will live  forever;  and the bread also  which I will give  for the life   of  the world  is My flesh.     John 6:51

Knowing  and believing this spiritual truth  and all the Old Testament prophecies  about the Savior,  the Apostle John  was able  to say  in 1 John 1:1-3,

What was from the beginning,  what we have heard,  what we have seen with our eyes,  what we have looked at  and touched with our hands,  concerning the Word of Life  —  and the life was manifested,  and we have seen  and testify  and proclaim to you the eternal life,  which was with the Father  and was manifested to us  — what we have seen  and heard  we proclaim to you also,  so that you too may have fellowship with us;  and indeed our fellowship  is with the Father,  and with His Son Jesus Christ.  

It is because  of spiritually discerned passages  like these  that many people  reject Jesus  as their Savior.     They lack  an understanding  of the LORD God Almighty,  who is our Creator Redeemer.     And so,  Jesus had to teach  us all  in John 4:24,

God is spirit,  and those who worship Him  must worship  in spirit  and truth.

Let us open up our Bibles  and learn  about things  “concerning the Word  of Life”,  so that God  may lead us  in the truths  that will  lead us  to eternal life.     Then we will say  with assurance,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  the power  of Your Word  of Life  gives eternal life  to all  who believe  in You.”

For His lovingkindness  is everlasting.

Psalm 105:3




Not that I have already obtained it,  or have already  become perfect,   but I press on  in order that  I may  lay hold  of that  for which also  I was laid hold of  by Christ Jesus.
