Intro – Here is Bill Shade with today’s “Moment from God’s Word”.
Message – Jesus made one of those startling statements in John’s gospel chapter six where He said, I am the bread of life, he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. John 6:35 Think of that. Jesus was not talking about heaven or the after life, but right now.
I remember years ago standing before a large group made up of several inner-city gangs from three large cities and reading that verse. Down deep inside each of them was experiencing raging hunger and a burning thirst, which they were trying to quench with drugs and sex and violence.
Somehow, the Holy Spirit opened ears that were deaf and hearts that were cold that night, and gang leaders and their followers tasted the Bread and water of life for the first time. Listen again to that promise, I am the bread of life, he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. Have you come? Have you believed?
